Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home excelled in our nursing category. We awarded them an A+ in this area. In computing our nursing ratings, we weigh both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 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 place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Among the reasons we rated this facility so favorably is that it received a strong short-term care score. In fact, short-term care is its second best category score. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. Our short-term care scores are important for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. However, even in its weakest link we still awarded it a respectable grade of B- in our long-term care category. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 97.82609 percent of its residents, which is an above average percentage. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
