Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses.

To complement its strong performance in other areas, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This particular nursing home provided 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 place 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 often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The final area we graded was this facility's worst area. Nevertheless, even its weakest link would likely be a strength for most facilities. We awarded it a strong grade of B in our long-term care category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 80.625 percent of its residents. This is a few points less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
