Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really fared well in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Turning to another one of this place's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. Inspections turned out to be one of its best category grades. We awarded this facility a grade of A-. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

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. Our nursing score includes a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we rated was short-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this category. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
