Nurse Quality

Grade: B

On top of having a decent overall grade, we also wanted to point out that this facility received favorable nursing marks this year. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's top score. Our nursing grade includes quite a few subcategories, but the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility a positive score in short-term care. This nursing home received a B in this category, which turns out to be one of our higher scores. Short-term care scores are important for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home also received a decent inspection grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we scored was long-term care. This nursing home was awarded a C in this area. Long-term care grades are generally used to judge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
