Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our long-term care grade. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 68.141594 percent of its residents, which is slightly lower than we were hoping for. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We analyzed the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in calculating our score in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another area of strength for this facility is in the area of inspections. Inspections proved to be one of its best categories. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category tend to have few severe deficiencies. 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-minus

The next category we graded is short-term care. This facility received a very good short-term care grade this year, with a B-. Although this wasn't nearly as good as some of its other grades, this remains an acceptable grade for that area. With our short-term care rating, we strive to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's level of 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 skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
