Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its excellent overall score, we gave this facility an A for its nursing grade. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's inspections. We awarded it an A- for that category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

The next category we analyzed is short-term care. Adding to its strong profile, this nursing home also performed well in this area. In fact, we awarded it a of A- for the category. In determining these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, 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 that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we assessed proved to be this facility's worst category. Nevertheless, even its weakest link would likely be a strength for most facilities. We gave it a strong grade of B for our long-term care category. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.445984 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
