Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its best category. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A. In determining our nursing ratings, we factor in both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided 0.3 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 avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We also want to emphasize this nursing home's nearly flawless health inspections recently. We gave them an A in this area. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category tend to have very few severe deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility truly excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. Only a select group of nursing homes performed more favorably in this area. In crafting our short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the final area we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area. Despite a few impressive grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless a bit concerning so we felt obligated to draw your attention to it. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the data points we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.01492 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
