Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received a strong overall score as discussed above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent long-term care rating. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 85.96491 percent of its residents. This is a bit less than we expected but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find 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

Adding to this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. When determining our nursing grades, we analyze both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we gave it one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a score of B. With our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's level 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 all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Turning our final category, inspections proved to be this facility's weakest link. It received a C in this area. Inspection ratings relate to a facility's inspections. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This means it avoided the more serious classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
