Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable short-term care score. We awarded it a respectable grade of B in this category. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is a more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few factors, but the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom grade in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 97.04797 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
