Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home received a nursing score which is stronger than its overall grade. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. We assessed the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses worked with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as predictive measures of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best area turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This place performed decently in this area, with 48.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Next we looked at this nursing home's inspection score This grade is based on the facility's recent inspections. We awarded it a C in this category. We believe that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we rated was long-term care, which proved to be a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D in the area of long-term care. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 96.12676 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.24 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
