Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this proved to be a strong nursing home is that it received a very impressive long-term care rating. In fact, long-term care was its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 89.49772 percent of its residents. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing scores are largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an impressive grade of B+. Few facilities performed better in this category. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we scored was short-term care. We gave this nursing home a solid grade in that category, with a grade of B-. Even though this wasn't as high as a few of this nursing home's other scores, it is still not the end of the world. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
