Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ long-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on its inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that category. Our inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's government inspections. Facilities that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat 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

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. There are quite a few criteria within this area. Many of these factors reflect nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed is short-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of C. Even though this ended up being its least impressive category rating, this is nevertheless not the end of the world. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. It does not appear that this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
