Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to earning a great overall grade, this facility really excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A-. Few nursing homes did better in this category. We weighed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Inspections is another area where this nursing home excelled. We gave this nursing home a grade of B+ for our inspections category. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given an impressive grade in our short-term care category. We gave this nursing home a better than average grade of B in this category. Short-term care grades are commonly used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the next area, this nursing home didn't fare very well. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this was its weakest grade. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.3262 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
