Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an A. In crafting our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 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 typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we rated is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a solid score in this category, with a grade of C. Although this is not as dominant as many of this facility's other grades, it is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. Our long-term care scores are critical for patients requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 95.833336 percent of its patients. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
