Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall score, this nursing home earned even higher grades in the area of long-term care. In fact, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed well in inspections. It received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with an A-. Few nursing homes with an overall score in this range performed as well in multiple categories. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk 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-plus

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+. We weighed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed 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 typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a patient more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we graded was short-term care. This facility was awarded a very good short-term care grade this year, with a B. This facility truly did not have any weak spots. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
