Many of the datapoints reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's inspection grade also was better than its overall score. Due to a quality inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 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: B-minus

This nursing home's third highest category is long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. Our long-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's volume of care. This includes a vast range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 51.247166 percent of its residents. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the final area, this facility received a respectable short-term care grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
