Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Even though we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable short-term care score. We awarded it a B in this area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is generally a meaningful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility 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. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of C. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility was awarded its next best category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of C in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Our long-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's amount of nursing care. This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 98 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

In the last category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. Inspection grades are based on a facility's recent inspection reports. We gave this facility a D in this category, which is a very poor grade. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. You should be most cautious when considering a nursing home that has severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place was assessed significant government fines in recent years of over $50,000. This typically signifies that government inspectors grew tired after several years of failed government inspections.
