Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best grade came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 95.30686 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a life threatening illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also found that this nursing home has received favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last category we analyzed is nursing. We awarded this facility a grade of C in that area. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
