Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its impressive overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A- for our nursing grade. Our nursing score is primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. This is one of the few facilities with an overall score in this range which received multiple category grades this high. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third area we assessed is short-term care. This facility received an impressive short-term care score, with a grade of B in the category. In our short-term care rating, we strive to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our last area is long-term care, where we gave this nursing home a C in this category. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
