Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we gave this facility an A-. Our nursing score features many subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning patients more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Turning to another of this facility's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have few 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: D

The last area we graded was long-term care, which ended up being a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of D in the area of long-term care, making this its least impressive category grade. We'd still suggest that you look at the bigger picture. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an above average datapoint. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
