Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Part of the reason this nursing home performed so well overall is that it excelled in the category of short-term care, with a B+ in that category. It outpaced most places in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an B. When calculating our nursing scores, we analyze both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility earned a B for its inspections grade. This is an above average score in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our final area is long-term care, in which we awarded this facility a grade of B- in this category. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 99.0991 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
