Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility really excelled in the area of long-term care. We awarded it an impressive grade of A for that category. This helped its overall profile. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.591545 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in inspections, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home's third highest score was short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. In determining our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. In this facility's case, we found that it offers less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our fourth category, we awarded this nursing home a D for our nursing category. This is the facility's least impressive category score. Naturally, this category hurt the facility's overall profile a bit. Our nursing rating analyzes quite a few factors, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This number is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
