Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of being a quality facility overall, this facility really excelled in long-term care, where it earned an A-. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 96.35761 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also gave this facility a grade of A- for our short-term care grade. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our nursing score looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics 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

Moving on to our inspection category, it appears this facility has earned quality inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a score of B in this category. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
