Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We awarded this facility an A for our short-term care rating. This is much more impressive than the facility's overall score. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is generally a reliable measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

This facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to be well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.24812 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Moving on our final category of inspections, we gave this facility a grade of just D. This turned out to be this nursing home's worst grade and it really hurt its overall grade. Our inspection grade is based on the facility's inspection reports. Since the information is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in overall grade. Inspection ratings factor in many items found on the nursing home's inspection reports. When you see too many deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular facility was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more severe deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by the government inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to residents. Finally, we also would like to point out that this place was assessed large government fines in recent years in excess of $50,000. This typically signifies that CMS inspectors became frustrated after several years of failed health inspections.
