This nursing home averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Among its many high-end grades, this facility was given a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a score of A- in this category. In computing these short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Turning to our inspection category, this facility excelled in that category, which is based on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final area we scored is long-term care, in which this facility received a B-. This ended up being this facility's least impressive area. This is still not a terrible score. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated just 72.50438 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
