Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home surprisingly received a good score in our short-term care category. We awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this facility favorable marks in the area of nursing care, where it received a grade of B. There are a number of factors within this category. Most of the datapoints reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility received mediocre government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a grade of C in this area. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Surprisingly, this place had a category J through K deficiency, which are among the worst possible categories of deficiencies. This often indicates that CMS identified a deficiency which placed patient safety or health in immediate jeopardy. 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

Turning to our last category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in our long-term care category. This is the facility's weakest category score. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the vaccine to just 88.0531 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
