Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality facility overall, this facility really performed well in our long-term care category, where it earned an impressive grade of A. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.409325 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes.

In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Grade: B-plus

Building on its impressive profile, this place also excelled in the category of nursing. We awarded it an B+ for that category. In calculating our nursing scores, we factor in both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was given an impressive short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B+. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is considered to be a useful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Moving on to the final category of inspections, this was not one of this facility's better grades. Inspection grades are based on a facility's recent government inspections. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was hit with 10 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means this facility dodged the more serious categories of deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
