Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received a much better grade for nursing than it received overall. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A-. We analyzed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a positive grade in our short-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in that area. In our short-term care category, we try to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's third most favorable area turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it was given a B-. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for folks needing more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable government inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This pulled down this nursing home's overall grade significantly. When a place has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also want to point out that this nursing home was assessed large government fines recently of more than $100,000. This typically means that a poor track record has been an issue for multiple years.
