Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to point out that this nursing home earned an A for nursing. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are with residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home 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.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition, this nursing home also received a nearly flawless inspection report. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that area with an A. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple relatively minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was awarded a strong short-term care grade as well. We gave it one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we assessed was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a decent score in this area, with a B-. Even though this is not as favorable as many of this nursing home's other scores, it is nevertheless not a terrible score. Long-term care grades are used to gauge a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility administered the vaccine to only 71.69811 percent of its residents, which is well below average. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
