Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

On top of being a quality facility overall, this nursing home really fared well in our long-term care category, where it earned an A. Few nursing homes did better in this area. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 99.64158 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on its inspection reports. We awarded it an A for that area. Our inspection scores are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. While this wasn't quite as good as some of its other category grades, this isn't a bad score either. Our nursing grade considers many datapoints. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we rated ended up being this nursing home's worst area. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a decent grade of C in our short-term care category. In our short-term care grade, we seek to create a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
