Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home also received an elite long-term care grade. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with an A+. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed well in inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that area with an A-. Few nursing homes with an overall grade in this range performed as well in multiple categories. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses at the facility, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we assessed is short-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in this category. Naturally, this category hurt the facility's overall profile to some degree. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This area is generally a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We found that this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
