Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We would like to note that this facility's short-term care grade outpaced its overall score. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this area, which is a very solid score. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed as well in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this facility an impressive grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this category, which is one of our higher scores. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.28097 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the last area, we awarded this facility a D for our nursing category. This is the nursing home's least impressive category grade. Of course, this score pulled down the facility's overall profile a bit. The nursing score analyzes quite a few data points, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
