Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility excelled in long-term care. We awarded it an A- for that category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home actually received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that category with a B-. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we analyzed is short-term care. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
