Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility actually earned an impressive short-term care rating this year. We gave it a B+ in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Surprisingly, this facility actually received an impressive nursing grade this year as well. We gave it a grade of B in this category. Our nursing rating assesses several components, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility received slightly below average government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this area. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. 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: F

The next area we scored was long-term care. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is a poor score. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 92.74004 percent of its patients. This is slightly lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
