Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, this facility earned a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 87.23958 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also want to emphasize this nursing home's nearly flawless inspections recently. We gave them an B+ in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we looked at was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. Short-term care grades are often used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we graded is nursing. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing grade considers numerous factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.
