Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this nursing home's nursing rating exceeded its overall score. This nursing home earned a B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. Our nursing category is based on several factors, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 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 typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also received favorable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a solid grade of C. In forming our long-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 93.61702 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst area is short-term care, which is the last category we analyzed. In this area, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is frequently a solid measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Based on its weak rating in this category, we were not shocked to learn that this facility provides significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.8 percent of its patients returning home.
