Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home's short-term care score is more impressive than its overall score. It received a strong scores in that category with a grade of B. In forming these short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. One of this nursing home's strengths is physical therapy hours. We found that it offers more hours with physical therapists to its residents than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. On top of excelling in the area of physical therapy staffing, we found that it performed as well as just about any facility in the country with 61.8 percent of its residents returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this metric.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is better than the facility's overall grade. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third area we graded is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Here we found that this place had 2.58 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this figure was not quite as favorable than its other scores in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we graded is nursing. We gave this facility a C in that area. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this statistic. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
