Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for short-term care. Short-term care ratings are crucial for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an A. When determining a facility's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also earned top notch inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. 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: F

Moving on to the last category, this facility didn't fare well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in that area, this is notably this nursing home's poorest category grade. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 97.19626 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
