Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled at short-term care. We gave it an impressive grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. This really boosted its profile. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also wanted to point out that this facility earned an B in our nursing category. Nursing scores are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility earned a solid inspection report this year as well, with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to the last area, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care grade of C. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 93.35664 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
