Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality facility is it received a very impressive short-term care rating. In fact, short-term care is its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility an impressive grade of A. Short-term care grades are vital for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not something to panic about.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. The nursing rating includes a handful of subcategories, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we scored is nursing, was this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this facility a D in this category. This is one of the few weak links of a quality profile. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 94.44445 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
