Nurse Quality

B+

Part of the reason this proved to be a decent nursing home is it received a very favorable nursing grade. In fact, its nursing rating ended up being its best category. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. In calculating our nursing scores, we assess both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This place provides an incredible 5.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Out of that total, many of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the more highly trained levels of nurses. On top of providing impressive levels of care, this facility also excelled in the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed as well as any nursing home in the state in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Facility Inspections

B+

We also want to emphasize this place's nearly flawless health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of B+ in this category. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

B

In addition, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received strong short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our higher scores in this area, with a B. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more critical for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. When we assessed this place's nursing hours, we found it provided significantly more care from registered nurses than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

C

Turning to our final category, this facility received a grade of C for long-term care, which we consider to be a decent score. Long-term care grades focus on a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to locate this facility's vaccination rates. Lastly, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
