Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This place earned a long-term care grade which is stronger than its overall score. We gave this nursing home a B+ in this area. This boosted its overall grade. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 61.14943 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility also excelled in nursing, where it received an B. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received an impressive score in our short-term care category. We gave this nursing home a better than average grade of B in that category. In our short-term care grade, we try to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we looked at was inspections. Unfortunately, this nursing home didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. We had to give it an F in this category. Since this data is compiled by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this category. This really dragged down this facility's overall score. When a nursing home has this bad of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home was assessed 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines totaling over $100,000. This typically suggests that a poor performance spanned multiple years.
