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. The nursing score consists of quite a few datapoints, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a favorable long-term care score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.64706 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on the nursing home's recent government inspection reports. We gave it an impressive grade of B+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Switching gears to the next area, this nursing home was given a highly favorable short-term care rating. We awarded it a B+ in this category, wrapping up one of our better report cards. In computing our short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
