Grade: A

To complement its elite performance in other areas, we awarded this facility a grade of A for its long-term care grade. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. Our nursing score includes a handful of subcategories, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we scored is short-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of B. Believe it or not, this proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. A facility is doing something right when their worst score still rates higher than most other nursing homes. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
