Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We awarded this facility one of our better scores in the area of nursing, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our nursing score assesses a handful of factors, however, the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 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 nursing home 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this category. Our short-term care scores are important for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last item we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility earned a solid inspection report this year as well, with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in that area. This is a decent grade in this area. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. One of the data points we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 96.57535 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
