Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a quality nursing home overall, this nursing home really excelled in nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 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 facility 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-minus

Adding to its impressive category grades, we awarded this nursing home an A- for inspections. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 9 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

This facility is also strong in the category of long-term care, where it was awarded a grade of B. It outperformed most facilities in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.8764 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly ailment for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home was awarded a better than average short-term care rating in our assessment, with a B-. While this wasn't quite as strong as some of its other category grades, this remains a decent rating in that area. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is considered to be a useful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
