Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

One of the many reasons this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an A+ short-term care grade. This is simply as good as it gets in this category. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home has earned near flawless inspections recently. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this area. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. We were not able to track down information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Without having access to all of the information regarding deficiencies for this facility, it was challenging to grade it in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong nursing score. In fact, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. We weighed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our rating in this category. 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 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 many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we graded is long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home an acceptable grade of B-. This is this facility's worst area. With our long-term care assessment, we analyze the amount of care provided by a nursing home, as well as a series of quality data points. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.77676 percent of its residents, which is better than the average nursing home. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
