Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to draw your attention to its relatively favorable short-term care score. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. Short-term care grades are commonly used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing score is largely based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we assessed was long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a solid grade of C. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for folks needing more conventional services associated with personal care. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated only 85.40146 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

The last category we looked at is inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. We gave it a D in this category. Since this information is compiled by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our grading. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 25 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
