Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to performing well overall, this facility received high marks in the area of short-term care as well. As a result, it received our highest grade in that category with an A+. In computing our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is frequently a useful assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like 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. Finally, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 7.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to an additional strength for this facility, we gave them one of our more positive scores in our long-term care category as well, with a B+. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are well cared for. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.337746 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we assessed proved to be this nursing home's weakest area. Nevertheless, even in its worst category we still awarded it an acceptable grade of B- for our nursing category. Our nursing rating weighs several subcategories, but the main one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
