Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility received even higher grades in long-term care. It earned one of our best grades in that category with an A. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 89.87342 percent of its residents. This is a few points less than we were hoping for. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's above average category grades came in the area of short-term care. We awarded them one of our more positive scores in that category, with a score of B+. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Moving on to our inspection category, it appears this facility has received quality government inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a score of B in this category. Inspection ratings are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
