Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a score of A- for our long-term care score. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this nursing home had 3.95 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Although this wasn't as favorable as some of its other scores in this category, this statistic may be skewed for some nursing homes due to the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also was given favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. Indeed, we awarded it one of our more favorable grades in that category, with a grade of B+. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of patients who returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Finally, we looked at this facility's inspection rating This did not end up being one of this nursing home's stronger grades. We gave it a score of C in this area. This isn't a terrible grade in this category. It simply wasn't as favorable as some of this nursing home's other category grades. Inspection grades are based on several data points located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. We did not consider anything on this nursing home's inspection report to be overly alarming.
