Short-term Care Quality
This facility earned a short-term care grade which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. This helped its overall profile quite a bit. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the majority of nursing homes in the country in this area with 55.1 percent of its residents returning home.
We also wanted to point out that this facility received an impressive grade of B+ in the area of nursing. Our nursing score is largely based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility offers 3.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day, of which more than an hour was provided by registered nurses. This is one of the more highly skilled nurses. In determining our nursing scores, we attach more significance to hours provided by registered nurses. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as predictive indicators of the caliber of nursing care offered, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

We found that this nursing home had 1.93 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is not too bad.
Lastly, turning to our inspection category, we gave this nursing home a C. Our inspection rating is based on the facility's government inspection reports. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This indicates CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent danger to patient safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
