Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

In addition to earning a strong overall grade, this nursing home fared well in short-term care. We awarded it a grade of A for that category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is frequently a fair measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home 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. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of A. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this facility has earned respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B- in this category. Our inspection ratings are based on many pieces of information 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 the well being of residents. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the final category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of long-term care. This is the facility's worst category grade. Of course, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 58.749996 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
