Nurse Quality

Grade: A

The main thing salvaging this facility's profile is its elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A in that category. When determining a facility's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility actually received a solid inspection report this year as well, with few major dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B-. Inspection scores are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of C in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we rated was long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 93.6255 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
