Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received a nursing score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. We looked at the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0 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 typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next best area is short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this area. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility 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.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we analyzed was long-term care. It received a lowly F for this area, which is a poor grade. This is clearly a significant concern. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 86.2069 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
