Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was superb in our long-term care category. We awarded them an exemplary score of A+ in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The fourth category we scored was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B+. This topped off an elite report card. Only a select few facilities received a B+ or higher in every single category. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
