On top of receiving a strong overall grade, this nursing home performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our nursing grade weighs several factors, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Historical

The third area we looked at is short-term care. This facility was given a favorable short-term care score, with a B+ in the category. With our short-term care category, we try to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. It does not look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This place fared better than most facilities in this area with 49.4 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, at most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents return home.

Historical

The last category we scored is long-term care. We awarded this facility one of our higher grades in that category, with a grade of B. This facility turned out to be strong in each category we looked at. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is far higher than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed was its hospitalization rate. We found that this facility had 1.98 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is close to average in this area.
