Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this nursing home an A+ for its short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this facility an A. We weighed the levels of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home averages 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we assessed is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a C. This was this nursing home's worst area. This is nevertheless not a major area of concern. In crafting these long-term care scores, we quantify the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
