Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We also wanted to emphasize the fact that this facility excelled in our nursing rating. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Our nursing grade is based on many factors, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.6 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home has received near flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this area. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home also received a first-rate short-term care grade. In fact, this turned out to be this facility's third most impressive category grade. In that category, we gave this facility a score of A. In forming these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we rated was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a decent score in that area, with a B-. Although this isn't as strong as several of its other scores, it is nevertheless not a bad grade. In the area of long-term care, we look at the amount of services offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more medically-intensive services. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 75.28517 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
