Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an excellent long-term care score, with a grade of A. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 89.171974 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a few points below what we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home has earned near flawless inspections recently. We gave them an A in this category. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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: B-plus

This facility also received a favorable short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this category. Our short-term care scores are arguably most critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category, this facility also was awarded an excellent nursing grade, with a grade of B+. This wrapped up a very favorable report card. When computing our nursing grades, we assess both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 facility the state 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 employing a protocol of turning a patient even once per day.
