Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition to performing well overall, this facility received a very good nursing grade this year as well. It received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this category. Short-term care scores are critical for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Another strong feature for this nursing home is that it excelled in the area of inspections, with a B in that category. It performed better than most nursing homes in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Unfortunately, this nursing home was hit with a category L deficiency, which was unexpected based on its inspection grade. This category of deficiency means inspectors discovered a widespread deficiency putting resident safety or health in immediate jeopardy. Even a single serious deficiency of this nature should be taken seriously. In spite of this major red flag, other aspects of this facility's inspection report gave us some hope.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we looked at is long-term care. We gave it a B- in that category. This is a fair grade in this category. Our long-term care grades are based on the nursing home's volume of care. This includes a broad spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided vaccination data. Lastly, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
