Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We gave this facility an impressive grade of A- for our short-term care grade. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our short-term care scores are crucial for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. One of this nursing home's strength is that it offers more hours of care from registered nurses to its residents. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of nursing homes in the country with 60.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an A-. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this area. With 4.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the national average. Finally, this facility also performed well in several of the quality measures we looked at. By way of illustration, in terms of the percentage of its patients sustaining falls leading to serious injury, this facility performed as well as just about any facility we assessed. Avoiding major falls is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be prevented if more nurses and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. This facility's vaccination statistics weren't as favorable some of its other datapoints in this category, such as its nursing hours data. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 87.05882 percent of its residents. We'd like to see some improvement herein this statistic in the future. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at limiting hospitalizations. While it had 2.79 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was not as bad due to it having some more complex patients. This is its best feature in this category

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we looked at is inspections. Unfortunately, this nursing home didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F in this area. Since this information is compiled by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this area. This really dragged down this place's overall score. For places that received this bad of an inspection score, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines recently totaling more than $100,000. This typically indicates that a poor track record has been an issue for several years.
