Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We want to note that this nursing home received favorable marks in the area of short-term care this year. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's top grade and helped its profile overall. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. 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 found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses were with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third best area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility did not receive a favorable inspection grade. We gave it a grade of just just D in this category. Inspection ratings relate to a nursing home's government inspections. We weight poor inspection ratings heavily in our assessment. Since government inspection reports are compiled by independent inspectors, we consider this information to be very reliable. One of the most critical factors in evaluating inspection reports is deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed a category J through K deficiency, which rank among the worst deficiencies. These categories mean that the government inspectors uncovered a deficiency which places resident health or safety in immediate jeopardy. Finally, we also want to point out that this place was assessed large government fines in recent years totaling over $100,000. This usually indicates that a nursing home's poor performance has been an issue for several years.
