Nurse Quality

Grade: A

On top of being a quality nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A. Our nursing score is mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its long-term care rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.1982 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia can be a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to another of this nursing home's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection score. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we scored was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B-. While this wound up being its poorest category rating, this is still a middle of the pack score. Our short-term care grades are critical for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 3.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
