Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's nursing rating was notably better than its overall grade. With a strong performance in this area, it earned one of our better scores in nursing with a grade of B+. The nursing grade features many subcategories. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 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 nursing home 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 often be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's inspection score exceeded its overall score as well. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was given its next best category score in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable score. Our short-term care scores are probably most important for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we analyzed is long-term care. For that category, we gave this nursing home a C. In determining these long-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted data regarding vaccinations. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
