Grade: A-minus

To pair with its strong overall grade, we gave this facility an A- for our short-term care grade. In our short-term care grade, we strive to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home.

One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.08676 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. With 1.99 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home was just about middle of the pack in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

The next area we looked at is nursing. We awarded this nursing home one of our better grades in this category, with a grade of B. This nursing home proved to be very solid across the board. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these data points as good measures of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
