Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We want to note that this nursing home earned a much better grade for short-term care than it received overall. It received one of our best grades in that category with an A. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. Our nursing grade includes a variety of factors. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. 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 nursing home 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 typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Turning to inspections, we gave this nursing home a D, which wasn't one of this facility's better scores. Our inspection rating is based on the facility's inspection reports. Our inspection ratings factor in many items on the facility's inspection reports. When you see too many deficiencies on the reports, this is generally the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines of over $50,000. This usually means that CMS inspectors became fed up after multiple years of failed government inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we graded was long-term care, which was this facility's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this area. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 95.271866 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
