Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility earned a short-term care score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. Our short-term care scores are crucial for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Surprisingly, this nursing home actually received a good score in inspections as well. We awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we graded is long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 98.86363 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
