Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a first rate facility overall, this nursing home also excelled in long-term care, where it received an A+. Few facilities fared better in this category. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.44444 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many impressive grades, this facility received an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- in that category. Our nursing category includes many components, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to another of this nursing home's strengths, it also earned a very impressive inspection score. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient 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

The final category we graded was short-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a favorable grade of B. Our short-term care ratings are probably most important for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
