Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home's overall grade was propped up by a strong long-term care score. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with a grade of B. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 92.23301 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is not an impressive total. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this facility has earned respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we graded was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. With our short-term care score, we seek to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
