Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this nursing home's nursing score exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded an impressive short-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that area, which is one of our better. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this nursing home has received respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we graded was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in this area. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the vaccine to only 85.55556 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
