Nurse Quality

Grade: A

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility performed well in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are seeing residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.6 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so well is that it was awarded a very impressive short-term care grade. In fact, short-term care ended up being its second highest category score. In that category, we awarded this facility a score of A-. Our short-term care scores are probably more important for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another area of strength for this nursing home is in inspections. In fact, inspections proved to be one of its best categories. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we rated was long-term care, where we awarded it an above average grade of B. This nursing home really did not have any weaknesses. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.67427 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
