Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home really excelled in our short-term care category, with an impressive grade of A in this area. This really propped up its overall grade. Short-term care grades are vital for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of A. Our nursing grade analyzes quite a few datapoints, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving residents at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection rating. More often than not, this indicates we found some red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. For nursing homes that received this poor of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we also would like to point out that this facility received large government fines amounting to over $100,000. This typically signifies that a facility's bad track record spanned more than one year.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded is long-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is a poor score. This is obviously a significant concern. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 95.480225 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
