Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility's short-term care score is more impressive than its overall grade. Due to a strong performance in this category, it received one of our better scores in that area with a B+. With our short-term care grade, we try to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B. Our nursing grade is based on a variety of datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving residents more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this nursing home has earned respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. Inspection scores account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we assessed is long-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of just D in the area of long-term care. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 99.52381 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
