Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of earning a great overall grade, this nursing home also received an excellent short-term care score, with an A. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Adding to its strong resume, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final category we scored was long-term care. This nursing home received a strong nursing score this year, with a grade of B. While this wasn't as strong as a few of its other category grades, this remains one of the more favorable grades in that area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
