Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A+. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's quality category scores came in the category of short-term care. We gave them one of our more positive grades in that area, with a score of B+. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this facility is that it excelled in the area of inspections, with a grade of B in that category. It outperformed most nursing homes in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our final area, this facility was awarded an acceptable long-term care grade of C. In the area of long-term care, we analyze the amount of care provided by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an above average percentage. This place keeps 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.
