Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Part of the reason this facility performed well overall is that it excelled in nursing, with a grade of B+ in that category. In computing our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place 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.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also performed well in inspections, which is based on the facility's government inspections. We gave it an B+ for that category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility was given a strong short-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category with a score of B. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is typically a meaningful measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next category we rated was long-term care, where we awarded it a favorable grade of B. This facility really does not have any weak links. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 77.2242 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
