Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility's best category grade came in our short-term care category. In that category, we awarded this place a B. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is typically a reliable assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also earned a very favorable inspection rating. In fact, its inspection score proved to be its second best category. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. 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. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. When computing our nursing grades, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored is long-term care. We gave it an F for this category, which is an abysmal score. This is clearly a major concern. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.93048 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
