Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received a much better grade for nursing than it received overall. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. The nursing category consists of quite a few subcategories, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 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 place 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 typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we awarded this facility a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our higher grades. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 65.9436 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility earned a good score in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we assessed is short-term care, ended up being this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. This was one of the few dings in a strong profile. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This area is considered to be a meaningful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. In this facility's case, we found that it provided less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
