Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an A in this area. In determining our nursing scores, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some quality-based measures in this category. This place fared well in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. By way of illustration, in terms of the number of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this nursing home performed better than the national average. This is generally an indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented with better nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The third category we analyzed was short-term care. This nursing home received a very positive short-term care grade, with a B+ in this area. In crafting our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we assessed was long-term care, in which we gave it a strong grade of B. This nursing home really didn't have any weak links. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.19 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes.
