Nurse Quality

Grade: A

To pair with its excellent overall grade, we awarded this facility an A for its nursing grade. Our nursing score looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a first-rate long-term care score. This actually is this nursing home's second best category score. In that category, this facility received a grade of A. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.560974 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an impressive grade of B+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we rated is short-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B. In our short-term care score, we strive to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
