Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We awarded this nursing home one of our better scores in the area of nursing, with a grade of 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 analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning patients more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a positive score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B in that area. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 95.21739 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly is often a life threatening ailment for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it received a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are often employed to grade a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

The final category we looked at was inspections. This ended up being this facility's worst grade. We gave it just a D in this category. Since this information is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our overall grade. One of the most critical factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This facility had a deficiency by government inspectors. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in a category that suggests that it posed a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines in recent years of more than $100,000. This typically means that a nursing home's bad performance has been an issue for more than one year.
