Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We also would like to emphasize the fact that this nursing home received an impressive grade of A for our nursing rating. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are caring for patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Adding to this facility's impressive resume, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent government inspections. 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 risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our better scores in our short-term care category as well, with a B+. With our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility was awarded a decent long-term care grade. Even though this isn't quite as strong as many of its other scores, this is truly not the end of the world. In the area of long-term care, we focus on the quantity of services offered by a facility, rather than more medically-intensive services. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 89.01099 percent of its residents, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
