Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.319725 percent of its residents, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Finally, 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home is also strong in the area of short-term care, where it was awarded a score of B+. It performed better than most facilities in this category. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the fourth area, this facility also performed well in the nursing category. We gave it a grade of B+ for this category. This finalized a very strong report card. Our nursing rating is based on several subcategories, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility 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 nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
