Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to receiving a great overall score, this facility also received an elite nursing rating. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an A. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this nursing home's better category scores was in the category of short-term care. This ended up being its second best category. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Our short-term care ratings are probably more important for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next most favorable area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 59.111115 percent of its patients. This is many points less than what we expected. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

In the last category we looked at, we found that this facility received a solid inspection report this year as well. As a result, it received a decent grade in inspections with a B-. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
