Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best category score came in the area of nursing. In this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this category. When calculating our nursing grades, we weigh both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second highest category turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In calculating our long-term care grades, we analyze the assistance with daily living received by a nursing home's residents. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our last category, this nursing home received a B- in short-term care, which is generally an acceptable grade. Short-term care grades are commonly used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
