Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong facility is that it earned a very impressive long-term care score. In fact, long-term care ended up being its best category. In that area, we gave this facility an A. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 62.727272 percent of its patients. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Inspection scores are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's inspections. Places that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its 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

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. When determining a facility's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility 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 generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our fourth area, this facility was awarded an acceptable short-term care score. While this wasn't nearly as dominant as many of its other category grades, this is really not the end of the world. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
