Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We awarded this nursing home a grade of A in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the facility's level 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 facility 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this area. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 96.61017 percent of its residents, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the last category of inspections, this facility did not fare well. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. This ended up really pulling this facility's overall score down as we heavily weight this category. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This facility was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 8 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
