Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 90.32258 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a few points less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, 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: A

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This place was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. In determining our nursing grades, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning a patient even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a respectable short-term care score. Even though this wasn't nearly as dominant as many of its other grades, this is truly not the end of the world. Our short-term care grades are arguably most critical for individuals in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
