Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its strong overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for its short-term care rating. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A+. There are a variety of criteria included in this area. Most of these datapoints are tied to staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 0.8 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Another impressive feature of this nursing home is its inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In the last category we assessed, this facility was given a very favorable grade of A- in our long-term care category. With this score, the facility finished off a straight A profile. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.5 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
