Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, 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 percentage of residents who returned home from the facility.

Among its many impressive grades, this facility earned an excellent nursing grade. In fact, we gave it an B in that category. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Grade: B

This nursing home earned a B for its inspections rating. This is an above average score in this category.

While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we looked at is long-term care. This facility was given an above average long-term care grade in our assessment, with a grade of B-. Although this was not quite as good as a few of its other scores, this remains an acceptable score in this category. Long-term care grades are often used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 97.85714 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
