Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of being a quality facility overall, this facility really fared well in the area of long-term care, where it earned an A-. Few facilities fared better in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.07407 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of short-term care. We gave them one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a grade of B+. Our short-term care ratings are probably more important for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Furthermore, this nursing home also earned impressive government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that category, with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The last category we looked at is nursing, in which this facility received a B. This facility did not end up having any noticeable weaknesses. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as good measures of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
