Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a first-rate nursing home overall, this nursing home also excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received an elite grade of A+. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. 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 information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive category grades, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Adding to its impressive resume, this nursing home also excelled in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category. Our nursing rating is mostly based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our next category, this facility was awarded a respectable long-term care grade. While this isn't quite as dominant as many of its other scores, this is still a middle of the pack score. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find this place's vaccination data. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
