Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We awarded this facility a solid grade in long-term care, where it earned a grade of B. Facilities that do well in long-term care tend to provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.10715 percent of its residents, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a B- for our inspections rating. This is more impressive than its overall grade. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Our nursing grade is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a patient more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our next category is short-term care, where we gave this facility a grade of B- in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
