Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall score, this nursing home received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded it a grade of A in that area. Our nursing grade weighs several subcategories, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home 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 avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also want to alert you to the fact that this nursing home received a superb score of A- in our short-term care area. In crafting these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

In the final category we looked at, we found that this facility received a solid inspection report this year as well. It earned a decent score in our inspection category with a score of B. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
