Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but it really excelled in nursing care, with an impressive grade of A- in this category. In calculating our nursing scores, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. 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 facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given a strong long-term care score. In fact, we gave them a B+ in that area, which is one of our more favorable scores. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 95.90909 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we looked at is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the last category of inspections, this nursing home did not fare well. It received an F in this category. This ended up really pulling this nursing home's overall score down as we heavily weight this category. With places that received this poor of an inspection score, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we want to point out that this facility was assessed large government fines of more than $100,000. This often suggests that a bad performance has been an issue for more than one year.
