Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Even though we were not high on this nursing home's overall grade, it received an impressive short-term care grade this year. We awarded it a B+ in this area, which proved to be a rare glimmer of hope in its profile. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is a more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home received a poor grade in this area as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously very concerning. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.41784 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
