Nurse Quality


This nursing home earned a strong overall grade as discussed above, but we especially wanted to point out its excellent nursing rating. We gave them an A in this area. We weighed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in determining our rating in this category. This nursing home offers extremely high levels of nursing care, averaging 4.6 hours per patient each day. This is more nursing care than nearly any other nursing home provides. Lastly, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed as well as any facility the state when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality


This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care score. Indeed, we awarded it an above average score of B+ in this category. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more important for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, we found that this nursing home provided respectable levels of physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections


Adding to its strong resume, this facility earned a grade of B for its inspections rating. This is a well above average score in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We wish we had more information about this nursing home. Without having all of the deficiency data, it is a challenge to really evaluate this nursing home in the area of inspections.

Long-term Care Quality


Turning to our last category, this nursing home was awarded a respectable long-term care score of B-. Long-term care grades assess a facility's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing and healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided vaccination data. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
