Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in long-term care, where it earned an A-. Few facilities did better in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This particular nursing home provided 0 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The final category we assessed is short-term care, where this facility received a grade of B+. This completed a very impressive report card. Few nursing homes received a B+ or better in every single category. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most critical for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
