Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its best category. In that area, we gave this nursing home an A. When computing our nursing scores, we factor in both staffing levels and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Only a select group of facilities performed more favorably in this category. Short-term care scores are vital for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility received 11 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we graded was long-term care. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. We wouldn't necessarily disregard a nursing home as a result of a single poor grade though. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated only 82.45614 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
