Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home earned a very strong long-term care score. In fact, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- in this area, which really bumped up its overall score. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 89.94253 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be slightly below what we anticipated but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Inspections is another area where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we awarded this facility an A- for our inspections rating. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with residents, in determining our score in this category. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our last area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for our short-term care category. This is the facility's least impressive category score. Unfortunately, this category pulled down the facility's overall grade a bit. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we assessed. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
