Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a favorable short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this area. Our short-term care grades are arguably more critical for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires more highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Another strong feature for this facility is that it received an impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. The nursing rating weighs a number of datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we rated is long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility an acceptable grade of B-. This actually is this nursing home's worst area. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's amount of care. This means a vast range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services.

We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated only 72.04611 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
