Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home excelled in our shot-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's scope of highly-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 every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that area, which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an impressive grade of A- for that category. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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: B-plus

Moving on to our final category, this facility was awarded an excellent long-term care rating. We gave it a grade of B+ in that category, completing one of our finer report cards. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.10145 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
