Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

We awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of A+ in the area of short-term care. In computing these short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility 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. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 7.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an A. Our nursing score is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the category of long-term care, we gave this facility a grade of A- in that area. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.611115 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Turning our last category of inspections, we gave this facility a D. This turned out to be this facility's worst grade and it really hurt its overall grade. Our inspection score is based on the facility's inspections. Since the information is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in overall grade. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to patient safety or health. However, there weren't many highlights for this facility in this area.
