Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility earned a short-term care grade which is stronger than its overall score. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this category. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. We were not able to find information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also excelled in inspections, where it earned an B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. There are a variety of factors included in this category. Many of these criteria are tied to nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is a poor grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 94.871796 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
