Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its favorable overall grade, we gave this place an A+ for inspections. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent 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: A

Contributing to its elite resume, this facility also excelled in our short-term care category. In fact, we awarded it a score of A for that area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our third area, this facility also received a score of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 93.75 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly less than we anticipated but still a decent figure. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the next area, this facility also performed admirably in the nursing category. In fact, we gave it a B+ for that area. This finalized a first-rate report card. Our nursing rating analyzes a handful of factors, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 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 facility Maine in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving residents more frequently.
