Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home received a short-term care score which is stronger than its overall score. We awarded this nursing home a B+ in this area. This helped its overall profile quite a bit. In our short-term care rating, we endeavor to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also excelled in nursing, where it received an B. Few places fared better in this area. There are a host of subcategories included in this grade. Most of the criteria relate to nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also found that this nursing home has earned favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a D in long-term care. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 93.70629 percent of its residents. This is somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
