Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also found that this nursing home excelled in our long-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this area. Facilities that do well in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life or death condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The next category we looked at was inspections, where this facility also received an A+ grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this critical category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's impressive category grades came in the area of nursing care. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics 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 place the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a resident more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we graded was nursing, is this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a D in this category. This really was one of just a few weak points of an otherwise strong report card. Our short-term care scores are presumably more important for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. It appears that this place was subpar in multiple staffing areas we assessed. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
