Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We awarded this facility an impressive grade of A- in the short-term care category. Our short-term care scores are believed to be more critical for patients needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an B+. Few places performed better in this area. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.15951 percent of its residents, which is a very solid statistic. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on our final category of inspections, this facility received a terrible grade. Unfortunately, with an F in the inspection category, this facility's overall grade was pulled down significantly. For places with bad inspection grades, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines recently of over $100,000. This generally signifies that a poor track record has been an issue for several years.
