Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home received a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent nursing rating. We gave them an A in this area. There are quite a few datapoints within this grade. Many of these datapoints relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an impressive 3.9 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, this facility was also above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. By way of illustration, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another area of strength for this facility is in the category of inspections. In fact, inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. In that area, we gave this facility a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The third category we looked at is long-term care. This facility was given an above average long-term care score, with a B in this category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.61878 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly is often a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.47 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our next area is short-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a B- in that category. Our short-term care scores are vital for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 39.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
