Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our short-term care category. In our short-term care category, we strive to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Our nursing score is primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also earned excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our best scores in that area, with an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the next area, this nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ in this area, topping off one of our finer report cards. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.57786 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
