Nurse Quality

Grade: A-plus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received a much better grade for nursing than it received overall. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A+. The nursing rating weighs many subcategories, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also performed favorably in the category of short-term care, where it received a score of A-. Not many nursing homes fared more favorably in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third highest area we awarded this facility in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a C. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 96.268654 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable total. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Turning our last category of inspections, we gave this nursing home just a D. This turned out to be this nursing home's worst grade and it really pulled its overall grade down. Our inspection score is based on the nursing home's inspection reports. Since the information is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in overall grade. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines in recent years of over $100,000. This often signifies that a nursing home's bad track record spanned several years.
