Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We gave this facility one of our higher grades in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. This is far better than its overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This area is more often than not a fair measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility's second best category is inspections. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. Inspection ratings are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's government inspections. Places that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. Our nursing rating is largely based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we scored is long-term care, which proved to be a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this facility an D in our long-term care category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.9011 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
