Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in our short-term care category. We awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our best grades. This salvaged its profile. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is generally a meaningful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing care, with an impressive grade of A- in this category. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this nursing home only received a D for its long-term care grade, which is not a score to write home about. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 96.850395 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it an F in this category. This dragged down this nursing home's overall grade significantly. For facilities with bad inspection grades, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility was hit with 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we need to point out that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines in recent years exceeding $50,000. This generally signifies that inspectors grew tired after several years of bad inspections.
