Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. When calculating our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility also received favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a B. This is better than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities third best category was long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. Long-term care grades are often used to score a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 93.297585 percent of its residents. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we analyzed is short-term care. This facility was given a C for the area. In our short-term care category, we seek to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
