Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A-. Few facilities fared better in this area. If it was not for this grade, this nursing home's overall grade would have been much lower. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more important for individuals requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility a favorable grade in nursing. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which is one of our better grades. Nursing grades are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility's inspection rating also was quite a bit better than its overall grade. Due to a strong inspection report this year, it earned one of our better scores in that category with a B. Inspection ratings are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is long-term care, which is this facility's least impressive category. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated only 85.375496 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
