Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this facility an A- for our long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.481865 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Building on its strong performance in other categories, we gave this facility a grade of B+ for our nursing rating. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses spend with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also earned top notch inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we rated is short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in that area. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
