Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This place really performed well in the area of long-term care. In fact, we gave it an A for that area. This boosted its overall profile. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 71.59763 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is slightly below what we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed well in inspections. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a score of A-. Our inspection scores are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. The nursing rating is based on many datapoints. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This particular facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is far below average. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we assessed was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D for the area of short-term care, making this the nursing home's worst category grade. With our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we learned that this nursing home provides fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below the national average.
