Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

On top of earning a strong overall score, this facility also earned an impressive nursing grade this year. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a B+. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 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 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is a well above average grade in this category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home earned a very good government inspection report this year as well. It earned one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B. Inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our final area is long-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a B- in that area. In the area of long-term care, we focus on the amount of services offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more sophisticated services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
