Nurse Quality

Grade: B

It should also be noted that this facility's nursing score outpaced its overall score. We gave it a grade of B for its nursing grade, which is one of our better scores. Nursing ratings are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B. It actually performed better than most facilities in this category. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also found that this nursing home has earned favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many nursing homes in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive category is long-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a D. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
