Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility received a strong overall score as mentioned above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent long-term care score. We gave them an A in this category. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. The last datapoint we looked at is its hospitalization rate. Here we found that this place had 1.76 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is middle of the pack in this area.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive grades, we gave this facility a grade of A- for inspections. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we looked at was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the fourth category, this facility was given a decent nursing grade of C. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This place provides 2.7 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
