Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received a far better grade for short-term care than it received overall. It received one of our highest scores in that category with an A-. Our short-term care scores are important for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home also earned a strong inspection score. Inspection grades are based on the facility's recent government inspections. We awarded this nursing home a B in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. The nursing grade consists of a handful of components, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is far below average. Finally, although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we assessed is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in long-term care, rendering this the nursing home's least impressive area. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this facility provided the vaccine to a relatively low 50.609756 percent of its residents, which is somewhat alarming. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
