Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received a nursing score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. There are quite a few subcategories included in this area. Many of the datapoints are tied to nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a patient at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's more impressive category scores came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this area. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 96.107056 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

The final category we looked at is inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being this facility's weakest link. We gave it just a D in this area. Since this information is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our grading. Our inspection ratings factor in many items found on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. When you find severe deficiencies on the reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular facility had one category J through K deficiency, which rank among the worst deficiencies. Finally, we also would like to point out that this nursing home was assessed large government fines recently in excess of $50,000. This often signifies that government inspectors became fed up after several years of failed health inspections.
