Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility's overall grade was helped by a strong long-term care score. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with a grade of B+. This is a much better grade than its overall score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 54.51505 percent of its patients. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also wanted to point out that this facility received an B+ in nursing. Our nursing rating is based on many subcategories, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning a resident more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. This grade is also better than the facility's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we scored was short-term care, was this nursing home's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this category. This really was one of the few weak links on a strong profile. Our short-term care scores are arguably most meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we discovered that this nursing home provided less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
