Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. 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. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in inspections, which is based on the facility's inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home received high marks in the area of nursing. It earned one of our best grades in that category with a score of A-. Our nursing grade weighs many subcategories. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we analyzed is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of C. This actually was this nursing home's least impressive area. This is still nothing to be ashamed of. Our long-term care grades are critical for patients looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.71795 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
