Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of being a quality facility overall, this nursing home really fared well in long-term care, where it earned an impressive grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 80.67633 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we anticipated. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in inspections. In fact, we gave it an A- for that area, which is one of our highest grades. This is one of the few facilities with an overall score in this range which received multiple category grades this high. Our inspection scores are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's government inspections. Nursing homes that score well in this category typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk 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-plus

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. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home was awarded a decent short-term care rating. While this wasn't as dominant as some of its other grades, this is truly not a major area of concern. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
