Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home earned an elite short-term care score. We gave this facility an A- in this area, which really helped out its overall grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, we found that this nursing home provided respectable levels of physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This place fared as well as just about any facility with 59.2 percent of its patients returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this metric.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility's second best category is inspections. In that area, we gave this facility a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Nursing scores are primarily tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, this place was relatively weak in some of the major areas we look at, with below average scores for minimizing its patients' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we rated is long-term care, which ended up being a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a D for our long-term care category. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.618324 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Although it had 1.83 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic wasn't bad due to it having more complicated patients.
