Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home excelled in our long-term care category, with an A in this area. This really propped up its overall score quite a bit. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 74.01575 percent of its patients. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed well in inspections. It received one of our best grades in that category with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third category we analyzed is short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of C. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our fourth area, we gave this nursing home a D for the area of nursing. This was the facility's least impressive category rating. Sadly, this grade pulled down the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
