Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We awarded this nursing home an A in short-term care. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. It does not appear that this nursing home provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B+. The nursing grade weighs many factors, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides 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 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 generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Looking to our inspection category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our inspection grades are based on the facility's health inspection reports. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This place had 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories J through L. This tells you that inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to place resident health or safety in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we analyzed is long-term care, which was this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Naturally, this category hurt the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted information on its vaccination levels. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
