Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of long-term care. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area 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: D

Turning to the fourth area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in the area of short-term care. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. However, we would not focus exclusively a single bad grade. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is often a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.6 percent of its patients returning home.
