Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's long-term care rating proved to be its best feature. The facility earned a grade of B- in this category. In forming these long-term care grades, we analyze the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second best area turned out to be short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. When determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is well below average. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

The final category we looked at was inspections. This score is based on the facility's recent inspections. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. Our inspection scores are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means this facility avoided the more ominous classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
