Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home's long-term care score outpaced its overall score. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 96.174866 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a deadly illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave this to chance. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. It actually fared better than most facilities in this category. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

The last category we looked at was inspections. This grade is based on the nursing home's recent government inspections. We awarded it a C in this category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This place had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you that this facility avoided 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.
