Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We awarded this nursing home one of our better scores in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A. This is far better than the nursing home's overall grade, which was certainly not elite. In crafting our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 6.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also received high marks in the category of long-term care, with a very impressive grade of A- in this area. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. This facility clearly performed well enough in these metrics to earn a quality grade in this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a resident more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last category of inspections, this nursing home received a terrible grade. Unfortunately, with an F in the inspection category, this facility's overall grade was pulled down significantly. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines in recent years of over $100,000. This generally means that a bad performance has been an issue for multiple years.
