Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home earned a favorable short-term care grade this year. We gave them a strong grade in that area, with a B+. This is a better grade than the nursing home's overall grade and was a boost to its overall profile. Short-term care grades are vital for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also performed well in inspections. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an B+. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded a strong long-term care score. In fact, we awarded them a B in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we scored is nursing. We gave it a B- in that category. This is a fair grade in this category. There are a variety of subcategories included in this category. Most of these subcategories are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared with most nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
