Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of A- in the short-term care category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an B+. Few nursing homes performed as well in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home was hit with 11 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Nursing scores are tied to nurse staffing levels. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored was long-term care. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a poor score. This is clearly a significant disappointment. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 98.4127 percent of its residents, which is an above average datapoint. Surprisingly, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
