Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in long-term care, where it earned an impressive grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 94.78261 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the senior population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility earned excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. In computing our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Finally, while this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our last area, this nursing home was given a C for short-term care, which we consider to be a decent grade. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
