Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

On top of having a decent overall score, we also wanted to point out that this nursing home received favorable nursing marks this year. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a B+. This proved to be the facility's top grade. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to point out that this nursing home was awarded impressive short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our higher grades in this category, with a B. This proved to be the facility's second highest grade. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we graded was long-term care. This facility was given a B- for this category. For patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 89.247314 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
