Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we gave this facility a weak overall score, we awarded it a B in the category of nursing. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a patient more often.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility performed well in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a B- for that category, which is a solid grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in this category. In our short-term care score, we seek to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was long-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in that area. Long-term care scores 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 amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility administered the vaccine to just 79.25311 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
