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 earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.958336 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another one of this nursing home's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections proved to be one of its best categories. We gave this nursing home an B+. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not deem 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility was given an impressive short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that area with a score of B. Short-term care grades are typically used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the last category, this nursing home was given a respectable nursing score of C. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we like to look at quality-based statistics, such as the percent of patients who suffered pressure ulcers and major falls. Sometimes these metrics are indicators of the quality of nursing care.
