Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility really excelled in our short-term care rating, with an A in this category. This really propped up its overall score. With our short-term care category, we seek to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, this nursing home offers both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities offer both. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's second best category grade came in the area of government inspections. In that area, we gave this facility a B. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this category. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the final category we scored. In this area, we awarded this nursing home an D. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
