Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility excelled in our shot-term care category. In fact, we gave it an A for that category. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is considered to be a reliable measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility has received near flawless inspections recently. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this area. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without complete deficiency related data for this facility, it was difficult to fully grade it in the inspections category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the number of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we scored is long-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B. This actually ended up being this facility's worst area. A facility is doing something right when it's worst grade still outperforms most other nursing homes. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 93.89313 percent of its patients, which is a bit less than we were hoping for. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
