Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

The main thing propping up this nursing home's profile is its elite nursing score. In fact, we awarded this facility an A- in that category. Our nursing grade is based on several datapoints, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This particular nursing home 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 facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility a positive grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this area, which happens to be one of our higher grades. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 68.74003 percent of its residents for pneumonia. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third best category was short-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this area. Short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

The last category we assessed is inspections. We were surprised to find that this nursing home received such a poor inspection grade. We gave it a grade of just just D in this area. Clearly, this grade is not on par with some of this facility's other category grades. Inspection grades relate to a nursing home's inspections. Since this information is collected by independent inspectors, we weight it pretty heavily. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. Generally, you should be more cautious when considering a facility with severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. This facility had one category J through K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. These categories mean that inspectors found a deficiency which places resident health or safety in immediate jeopardy. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This usually signifies that a poor performance has been an issue for more than one year.
