Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to earning a great overall grade, this nursing home really excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the area of long-term care, we gave this nursing home a score of A- in that area. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed favorably in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Very few nursing homes fared better in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. 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. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In the final category of inspections, this facility did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection category. This ended up really pulling this facility's overall grade down as we heavily weight this category. For places with bad inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was assessed several deficiencies in categories G through L, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by the government inspectors had potential to cause actual harm to patients. Finally, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years of more than $100,000. This generally indicates that a poor performance spanned multiple years.
