Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

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 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also excelled in our nursing category, where it received an B+. Few facilities performed better in this category. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. When a place has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home was hit with 8 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 7 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored is long-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest category. It received a lowly F for this area, which is certainly very concerning. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.55173 percent of its residents, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
