Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also found that this facility excelled in our long-term care rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 97.8903 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an A+. We weighed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place 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 state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving residents more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home also earned excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our best scores in that category, with an A. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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: A-minus

In the final category we graded, this facility received an impressive grade grade of A- in our short-term care category. With this grade, the nursing home rounded out a straight A profile. Our short-term care grades are likely most critical for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
