Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of faring well in its overall grade, this nursing home received a nearly flawless inspection report. Consequently, it received one of our best grades in this area with an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to point out the fact that this nursing home was awarded a dominant grade of A in our short-term care category. Our short-term care ratings are presumably more critical for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides a greater volume of physical therapist hours to its residents than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy hours, we found that it fared as well as just about any nursing home in this area with 67.1 percent of its residents returning home. Most nursing homes are below 50 percent in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a strong long-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be this nursing home's third most impressive category score. In that category, we gave this facility a score of A-. For patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 89.583336 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. While it had 1.96 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was better than the majority of nursing homes since it had more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The final category we assessed was nursing. This nursing home was awarded a better than average nursing score this year, with a grade of B. Although this is not as dominant as a few of its other scores, this is nevertheless one of the more impressive grades in this category. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these data points as good indicators of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
