Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for short-term care. In forming our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among this facility's other strengths is its elite nursing grade. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A-. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received an impressive long-term care score. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B in this category. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are well cared for. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly is often a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

In the last category we assessed, this nursing home earned a decent score in inspections as well. We awarded it a B- for that category. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 5 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.
