Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the reasons this place received a great overall grade is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this facility an A. There are quite a few subcategories included in this area. Most of these criteria are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility received high grades in the category of short-term care as well. In fact, we awarded it one of our most superb grades in that area with a area of A-. Our short-term care grades are probably most important for individuals needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

We also wanted to emphasize this facility's nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a grade of B+ in this category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed is long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of C. Even though this is its least impressive category score, this is still not the end of the world. Our long-term care grade is often used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 82.11921 percent of its patients, which is somewhat concerning. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
