Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility 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 many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also received favorable short-term care scores in our assessment. In fact, we awarded it one of our higher grades in that category, with a score of B. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is frequently a useful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home earned a very good inspection report this year as well. It earned one of our better scores in that area with a B. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we rated is long-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility vaccinated only 68.84615 percent of its residents, which is slightly concerning. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
