Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a quality facility overall, this facility really excelled in long-term care, where it earned an impressive grade of A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 87.17949 percent of its residents. This is somewhat below what we expected. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores are tied to several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. It doesn't look like we have information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. There are a host of subcategories within this grade. Many of these factors relate to nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a patient at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we assessed is short-term care. This facility was awarded a grade of C for this category. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
