Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility earned a long-term care grade which is better than its overall score. We awarded this nursing home a B+ in this category. This boosted its overall profile. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Remarkably, this facility actually earned a good grade in inspections as well. In fact, we gave it a B- for that category, which is one of our better grades. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. With our short-term care category, we try to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the last category, this facility received a grade of C for nursing, which is a respectable rating. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with residents, in determining our grade in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
