Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

The main thing propping up this facility's profile is its elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A- in that category. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a positive score in our short-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B+ in this category. In determining these short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also found that this nursing home has earned favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many nursing homes in this category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we graded is long-term care, which is this facility's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this category. Of course, this category pulled down the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 97.36842 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
