Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We weighed the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to 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: A

Contributing to its first-rate resume, this facility also performed well in our long-term care category. In fact, it received a grade of A for that category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 95.99236 percent of its residents. This is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Racking up yet another strong category grade, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A. Few facilities fared better in this category. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we looked at is short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a strong grade of B. Our short-term care ratings are vital for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home 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 number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 3.8 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
