Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We gave this facility one of our higher grades in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A-. This is notably better than the nursing home's overall score, which was certainly not elite. In our short-term care score, we attempt to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next best category was long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.16981 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

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-. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are with residents as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was inspections. This facility did not receive favorable government inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This dragged down this nursing home's overall grade significantly. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This facility had 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This generally suggests that a bad performance spanned more than one year.
