Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We want to note that this place earned a much better grade for long-term care than it received overall. In fact, we gave it one of our best grades in that area with an A. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 97.77778 percent of its residents. This is a proven method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our nursing rating is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's higher category scores came in the category of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B. Short-term care grades are important for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. Finally, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Moving on the last category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's worst grade. Inspection grades are based on a facility's recent government inspections. We gave this nursing home a score of D in this category, which is not a very good grade. Since this data is collected by independent inspectors, we tend to take it pretty seriously. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. Generally, you should be especially cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. This particular nursing home had one category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst deficiencies. Lastly, this facility also received large government fines recently.
