Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of performing well in its overall score, this facility earned even higher grades in long-term care. It received one of our best scores in that category with an A-. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.90576 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.98 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed well in inspections, which is based on its recent inspections. We awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our top scores. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. The nursing category consists of several factors, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This facility was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to our next area, this nursing home also performed admirably in the short-term care category. We awarded it a B+ for this area. This rounded out a very strong profile. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. It performed better than most facilities in this area with 51.8 percent of its residents returning home. With most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
