Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our nursing grade. Our nursing rating includes numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so well is that it was awarded a dominant short-term care grade. Indeed, short-term care ended up being its second most impressive category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A-. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Moving on to another of this facility's strengths, it also received a very impressive inspection score. In that area, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This particular nursing home received 4 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: D

The next area we assessed was long-term care, which ended up being a weak spot for this facility. We gave this facility a grade of D for long-term care, leaving this as the facility's weakest category grade. We would nevertheless suggest that you look at the bigger picture. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 81.818184 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
