Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we wanted to point out its excellent long-term care score. We awarded them a grade of A in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this facility earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The next area we analyzed was short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a favorable short-term care grade, with a B+ in the area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we assessed was nursing. This facility received a strong nursing score in our assessment, with a B-. While this wasn't nearly as dominant as many of its other category grades, this remains a decent score in that area. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
