Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its impressive overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A- for our nursing score. The nursing rating weighs a variety of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also performed well in inspections, which is based on the facility's inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an B+ for that category. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspections. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor dings are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to our third category, this facility also received a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average grade in this category. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we looked at is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this area. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled therapy and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 82.670456 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be several points less than what we expected. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
