Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

It should also be noted that this facility's nursing grade outpaced its overall rating. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for its nursing grade, which is one of our better scores. The nursing grade consists of several components, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities second best category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack score in this area. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of long-term care, with a grade of C. In calculating our long-term care scores, we look at the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Turning to the final area of health inspections, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our inspection category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This nursing home had 12 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled J through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to place resident health or safety in imminent harm or jeopardy. Overall, this inspection report certainly could be worse.
