Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received a much better grade for nursing than it received overall. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.5 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also gave this nursing home a positive score in short-term care. This nursing home received a B+ in this area, which turns out to be one of our more impressive grades. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility received somewhat favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them a decent score in that area, with a grade of C. Inspection scores are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This place had 11 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories J through L. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to put resident health or safety in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our last area, this facility really did not fare well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this was this nursing home's poorest category grade. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 75.60976 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
