Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a strong nursing home is that it earned a very impressive long-term care rating. In fact, long-term care was its best grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A-. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information on its vaccination levels. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+ for our inspections rating.

Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health.

Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics 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 nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of turning patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

The last category we analyzed was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B+. This rounded out a first-rate report card. Not many nursing homes earned a B+ or better in all four categories. Short-term care grades are critical for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
