Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our short-term care grade. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. It does not look like this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an B+ for that category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few relatively minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Adding to its profile, this facility also earned a grade of B+ for its nursing rating. This is a well above average score in this category. Nursing scores are largely 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 measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the fourth category, we gave this facility a D for long-term care. This is the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Naturally, this score hurt the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective 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 considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
