Nurse Quality

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of nursing. We gave it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provided 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 place 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.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's second best category is inspections. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. Inspection ratings are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspections. Places that excel in this area tend to have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we rated is long-term care. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Our long-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's amount of nursing services. This means a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 94.202896 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
