Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We awarded this facility an A- for our long-term care grade. This is much more impressive than its overall grade. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After considering the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 93.582886 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also want to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of B+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we graded was short-term care, ended up being this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that category. This really is one of the couple of weak points in an otherwise impressive profile. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This area is frequently a useful measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
