Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home earned a favorable short-term care grade this year. We awarded them a strong grade in that category, with a B+. This is a notably better grade than the nursing home's overall score and was a boost to its overall profile. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility received somewhat favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them a decent score in that area, with a grade of C. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. 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: F

This nursing home's weakest category was long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. It received an abysmal F in this category. Despite multiple respectable scores in other areas, this score is nevertheless concerning so we felt obligated to draw your attention to it. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated only 57.333332 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
