Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong facility is that it received an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an A. Our inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this nursing home also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded an impressive short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. We were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Our last area is nursing, in which we gave this nursing home a grade of C in that category. There are many subcategories within this category. Most of these factors are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.
