Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of earning a great overall score, this facility excelled at short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most important for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a dominant long-term care score. Indeed, this turned out to be this nursing home's second best category score. In that area, this facility received a score of A. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we assessed is nursing. We awarded this facility an acceptable score in this category, with a B-. While this isn't as strong as several of its other grades, it is still not the end of the world. The nursing grade considers a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory.
