Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our long-term care grade. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this nursing home also earned top notch health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to our next area, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we scored is nursing. In this category, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. This actually is this nursing home's weakest category. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving residents more often.
