Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are critical for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.6 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed well in our inspection category, which is based on its recent inspections. We awarded it an A- for that area. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing score analyzes quite a few components, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 avoiding 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

The final area we assessed is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a D in our long-term care category, leaving this as its worst grade. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 96.99454 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
