Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also want to emphasize the fact that this nursing home received an A for our nursing category. There are a host of criteria included in this grade. Many of the subcategories relate to levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also performed well in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a score of A. Not many facilities performed better in this area. With our short-term care score, we attempt to create a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that excel in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we assessed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. This ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. Our long-term care scores are more important for residents in need of more traditional assistance related to personal care. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
