Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received a nursing score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area.

This facility provided 0 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 well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B. Inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent government inspections. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident safety or health. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded them a B in this area, which is one of our more favorable scores. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to the next area, this facility received a respectable short-term care grade of C. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. We weren't able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility.
