Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this place earned a much better grade for long-term care than it received overall. we gave it one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A-. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 88.51064 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Surprisingly, this facility actually received a good score in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we gave it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better grades. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Nursing scores are tied to nurse staffing levels. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we scored was short-term care, which was this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a D in this area. Our short-term care grades are important for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its poor grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
