Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

The main reason this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A-. We assessed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the category of short-term care, with a very impressive grade of A- in this area. In our short-term care category, we strive to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we scored is long-term care, is this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. This really was one of the few weak links in a quality report card. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
