Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received an excellent nursing score, with a grade of A. We assessed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to this nursing home's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home an A- for inspections. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you 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. A couple minor dings aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average grade of B+ in this area. In crafting our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The last category we graded was long-term care. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a strong grade of B. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 94.155846 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
