Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

On top of receiving a favorable overall grade, this nursing home also earned a strong long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. For residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 92.25352 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we expected but still a respectable figure. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Our nursing rating consists of many subcategories, however, the main one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our final category, this facility received a C in short-term care, which is a decent grade. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
