Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A-. Our nursing score considers a variety of datapoints. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures 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 facility the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a patient at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was given its next best category grade in the area of short-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Our short-term care ratings are critical for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also found that this facility has received favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor dings are not something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our last area is long-term care, where we gave this facility a C in this category. In a long-term care environment, the 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 patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 70.48346 percent of its patients. This is many points less than what we expected. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
