Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled at short-term care, with an A- in this area. This really propped up its overall grade. Short-term care grades are vital for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

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 is mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility received somewhat favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them a decent score in that area, with a grade of C. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This means it avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we graded is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for long-term care, leaving this as its weakest grade. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinates 94.666664 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
