Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this nursing home received high marks in the area of short-term care as well. It received our highest grade in that category with a score of A+. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 7.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive profile, this facility also performed at a high level in the area of inspections. In fact, it earned a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with a score of A-. Inspection grades are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the last area, this facility did not fare very well. With a very poor grade of F in that category, this was obviously this nursing home's worst category grade. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 73.809525 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
