Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of its strong overall grade, we gave this facility an impressive grade of A for our long-term care score. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 82.414696 percent of its residents. This is slightly lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed as well in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. When computing a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. 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 place 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we scored was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home an acceptable grade in that category, with a grade of B-. Even though this isn't as favorable as several of its other scores, it is nevertheless not a bad grade. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
