Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home earned an elite short-term care grade. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A- in this category, which really helped its overall grade. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most critical for residents requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. This is better than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home received 8 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our nursing grade features many datapoints. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the final area, this nursing home received a C in long-term care, which we consider to be an acceptable grade. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for residents needing more conventional assistance associated with personal care. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
