Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it earned a very impressive short-term care score. This turned out to be its best category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of A. Short-term care grades are commonly used to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 7.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the facility's recent government inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The third area we analyzed was long-term care. Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in this category. In fact, we awarded it a of A- for the category. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.29578 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we graded, this facility received an impressive grade grade of A- in our nursing category. With this score, the facility rounded out a straight A profile. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are with patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
