Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To pair with its strong overall score, we awarded this facility an A for short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are likely most meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed well in inspections, which is based on its recent government inspections. We awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our top scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. There are several factors within this grade. Many of these subcategories reflect staffing levels. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding 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-minus

The next category we analyzed was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of B-. Although this proved to be its lowest category grade, this is still nothing to be ashamed of. Our long-term care scores are crucial for individuals seeking personal care. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 90.55794 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
