Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility performed well in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at 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 area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Nursing grades are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility was given an acceptable long-term care grade of C. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.54751 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
