Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility earned an elite long-term care grade. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A- in this category, which bumped up its overall grade. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 85.29411 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. The nursing category is based on quite a few subcategories, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility 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 country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of turning a resident more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility earned a solid inspection report this year as well, with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a 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: C

The last area we scored was short-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that area. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. It does not appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
