Grade: A-minus

This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this area. In the category of long-term care, we look at the amount of services provided by a nursing home, rather than more sophisticated services. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 90.03984 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the next area, this facility received a C in nursing, which we consider to be a decent score. We scrutinized the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This facility averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
