Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best category grade came in long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 98.47716 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable category was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Our short-term care grades are presumably most critical for residents in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it an F in this category. This dragged down this facility's overall score significantly. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility was hit with 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 2 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
