Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this facility a grade of A for our short-term care grade. Our short-term care grade is often used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 7.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility also excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspections. Facilities that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are with patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive area is long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this area, we awarded this facility an D. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home vaccinated 97 percent of its patients, which is a very solid figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
