Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to earning a great overall score, this nursing home received an A+ in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grade is often used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A. Our nursing rating weighs a number of datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 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 facility 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: A

Adding another impressive category grade, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of A for our inspections category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the next category, this nursing home did not fare well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category, this is notably its poorest grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 86.02151 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a bit below average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
