Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's nursing score outpaced its overall score. In fact, we gave it a B+ for its nursing grade. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the amount of time nurses spend with patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. With 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the national average. Finally, this place also fared even better in most of the quality measures we looked at. It had a low rate of patients experiencing both major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received favorable inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility received its third best category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this facility a C in this area, which is a decent score. In calculating our long-term care ratings, we size up the assistance with daily living offered to a facility's residents. While we determined this nursing home had an impressive volume of nursing hours provided by nurses aids and other nursing staff, we found its vaccine statistics to be somewhat low. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 76.068375 percent of its patients. This is a statistic we would love to see this nursing home improve. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest category is short-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. For this area, we gave this nursing home a D. In forming these short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With a score of this caliber for this area, we were not stunned to learn that this place was below average in multiple staffing metrics we assess. In fact, it supplied far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We were surprised to find that it performed better in this area, with 51.3 percent of its residents returning home. This was just about this nursing home's sole highlight in this area.
