Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate nursing home overall, this facility also fared well in the area of long-term care, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 97.74436 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place had 4.84 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Although this wasn't as favorable as some of its other scores in this area, this number can be skewed for some nursing homes based on some of the medical complexity of patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also performed well in inspections, which is based on its recent government inspections. We awarded it an A for that area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was given a strong short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category with a score of B+. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities with 62.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we analyzed was nursing. In this category, we gave this nursing home a decent grade of C. This turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. Nursing grades are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored in some quality-based metrics. This facility scored well in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place outpaced the national average. This is usually an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented with better nursing care.
