Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition to having a decent overall score, we also wanted to point out that this facility received favorable nursing marks this year. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. This proved to be the facility's top grade. In computing our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was given its next highest category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of B- in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Our long-term care grade is typically used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 91.09849 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we anticipated but still a decent percentage. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Next we looked at this facility's inspection rating This grade is based on the nursing home's recent inspections. We gave it a C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent danger to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. In computing these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
