Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home really excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that area. This helped its overall profile. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.2043 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+ in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. There are a host of criteria included in this area. Many of the criteria relate to staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave them a grade of B+ in that category, which is one of our better. In determining these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the final category of inspections, this nursing home really did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection category. This pulled this facility's overall score down as we heavily weight this category. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this place has been assessed significant government fines in the past few years.
