Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

To pair with its strong overall grade, this facility earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it was awarded an impressive short-term care grade. Indeed, this turned out to be its second best category score. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B+. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also was given favorable long-term care scores in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with a score of B. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 75.32468 percent of its patients. This is somewhat less than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to the final category we assessed, this facility earned a good score in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we gave it a grade of B- for that category. This facility didn't have any major weak links. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
