Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care rating. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 54.782608 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a few points below what we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed well in inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. It received one of our highest scores in that area with a score of A-. Few facilities with an overall grade in this range performed this well in multiple categories. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. Our nursing grade weighs a number of datapoints. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last category we looked at, this nursing home was awarded an impressive grade grade of B+ in our short-term care category. With this score, the nursing home rounded out a very favorable profile. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It does not appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
