Grade: A

This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent nursing grade. We awarded them an A in this area. In computing our nursing grades, we analyze both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This particular nursing home received 5 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 nursing home's next best category turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our last category is long-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a grade of C in that category. Long-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's volume of nursing care. This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.492386 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
