Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first rate facility overall, this facility also excelled in long-term care, where it earned an impressive grade of A+. Few facilities fared better in this category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of looking at the well above average level of care provided by nurses aids and other staff at this facility, we also were happy with the nursing home's vaccination statistics. By way of example, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. The last statistic we assessed is its hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 2.07 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing grades are primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which was among the highest totals we found. Finally, this facility was also above average in each of the major quality measures we assessed in this category. For example, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility earned a grade of B for its inspections rating. This is an above average score in this area. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This place received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be 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: D

Switching gears to the next category, we gave this nursing home a D for our short-term care category. This was the facility's worst category rating. Nevertheless, we would not dwell on a single poor grade. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we learned that this facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 22.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
