Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

On top of receiving a strong overall score, this facility performed well in our nursing category. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. In computing our nursing ratings, we assess both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 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 place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another area of strength for this facility is in the area of inspections. Inspections turned out to be one of its best categories. In that area, we awarded this facility a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our next category is long-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a grade of C in that category. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 95.71429 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
