Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received a nursing grade which is better than its overall score. We gave this place an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing rating features a host of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we also wanted to note that this nursing home was given positive short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second highest score. Short-term care grades are commonly used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's higher category grades came in the area of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

In the last area we looked at, we found that this facility received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from government inspectors. As a result, it earned a decent grade in inspections with a grade of B-. This facility didn't have any major weaknesses. Our inspection grades are tied to several data points found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
