Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We gave this nursing home an impressive grade of A- for our short-term care rating. This is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is more often than not a useful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. We weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

We would also like to draw your attention to this facility's strong inspection grade. This nursing home earned a B in this category, which is one of our better grades. These inspection ratings 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 a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.

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-. Our nursing score analyzes quite a few components, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides only 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this subcategory. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a resident more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the fourth area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for long-term care. This is the facility's weakest category grade. Naturally, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 93.84615 percent of its patients. This is somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
