Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this nursing home's nursing grade exceeded its overall rating. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. There are quite a few factors included in this category. Most of these subcategories relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we awarded it a B+ in this area, which is one of our more favorable scores. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 72.31121 percent of its patients. This is a bit less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it 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, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a solid grade in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are likely most critical for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Lastly, we also found that this facility has received favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a score of B- in this category. Our inspection ratings are tied to several data points located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. 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.
