Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in our short-term care category, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. In our short-term care score, we attempt to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A in that category. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a grade of C. Even though this is its poorest category grade, this is nevertheless not a terrible score. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for folks in need of more traditional assistance related to personal care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 92.77109 percent of its patients. This is a few points less than we expected but still a decent percentage. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
