Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this nursing home received an A+ for nursing. When computing a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to alert you to the fact that this nursing home performed remarkably in our short-term care rating. We awarded them an elite grade of A+ in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

Continuing with its first-class performance, this facility also earned an A+ inspection rating. This grade is based on its recent inspection reports. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we graded is long-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a B-. This is this facility's least impressive area. This is still not a major area of concern. In crafting our long-term care ratings, we look at the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
