Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent nursing grade. We awarded them a grade of A- in this area. In calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. In calculating our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is considered to be a reliable measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received a favorable long-term care score as well. We gave it one of our better scores in that area with a grade of B+. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 94.82759 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Lastly, we looked at this nursing home's inspection score This did not end up being one of this facility's stronger areas. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This isn't a horrible score in this category. It simply wasn't at the same level as some of this nursing home's other category grades. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This place was hit with 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This tells you that it dodged the more significant classes of deficiencies. We did not find anything on this nursing home's inspection report to be overly alarming.
