Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility excelled in our short-term care rating, with an A- in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. We looked at the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with residents, in computing our score in this area. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good 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: C

The last category we rated was long-term care. This nursing home received a grade of C for the area. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After considering the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
