Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. This salvaged its overall profile. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 28.571428 percent of its patients. This is slightly less than we expected but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's second best category is inspections. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received impressive short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our more favorable grades in that area, with a B. With our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Our last area is nursing, where we gave this facility a C in this area. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
