Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility excelled in the area of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it an impressive grade of A- for that category. This saved its overall profile. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 92.631584 percent of its residents. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Another strength of this facility is its top-shelf score in short-term care. We awarded them one of our most impressive grades in that area, with a score of A-. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to forge a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

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. We assessed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in computing our score in this category. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Moving on the final category of government inspections, we gave this facility a D for our inspection category. This was its worst category grade, particularly in light of some of the more impressive scores referenced above. Nevertheless, since this data is compiled by an independent government inspector, we weight it heavily in our overall grade. One of the most significant factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We suggest you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, we also want to point out that this facility received significant government fines in recent years of more than $50,000. This often signifies that inspectors became fed up after several years of bad government inspections.
