Long-term Care Quality
On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really fared well in the area of long-term care, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes did better in this category. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on its inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. We looked at the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients more frequently.

The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
