Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility really excelled in the category of short-term care, where it received an A. Few facilities fared better in this category. If it was not for this category, this nursing home's overall score would have been much worse. Our short-term care grades are likely most critical for patients requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this facility an A-. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a system of moving patients at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third area we analyzed is long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a decent grade of B-. In the area of long-term care, we focus more on the quantity of care offered by a nursing home, rather than more sophisticated services. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 89.74359 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a bit lower than what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on our final category of inspections, this nursing home received a grade that's as bad as it gets. Unfortunately, with an F in the inspection category, this facility's overall grade was pulled down significantly. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility had 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines recently of over $100,000. This usually means that a nursing home's bad track record spanned several years.
