Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an excellent long-term care score, with a grade of A. When facilities receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.25373 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility received an impressive grade of A in our nursing category. There are a host of datapoints included in this grade. Many of these criteria are tied to nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Another quality feature of this facility is its inspection score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of A-. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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

The final area we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded this facility one of our higher scores in that area, with a B. Even though this wasn't as high as many of this nursing home's other scores, it is still an excellent score. Our short-term care grades are critical for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
