Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We gave this facility one of our better scores in nursing, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our nursing grade is mostly associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also want to emphasize this place's nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of B+ in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was awarded its third best category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a decent score. In crafting our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our next category, we gave this facility a D in the area of long-term care. This is the nursing home's weakest category rating. Unfortunately, this category hurt the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 91.72414 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
