Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing grade. The nursing grade is based on quite a few components, but the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on its recent inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it an B+ for that area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we looked at is long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a very positive long-term care grade, with a B in the area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.76852 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we rated was short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area. Our short-term care scores are presumably most critical for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
