We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this nursing home a strong grade in short-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this category, which happens to be one of our higher scores. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third most favorable area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. With our long-term care score, we analyze the sheer quantity of services provided by a facility, as well as a handful of quality statistics. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 92.391304 percent of its patients, which is slightly below what we were hoping for. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

The final category we looked at is inspections. The nursing home received a C in this category. Our inspection grades are based on items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means that it dodged the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
