Nurse Quality

Grade: A

In addition to earning a great overall grade, this facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an A. The nursing rating consists of a handful of factors, however, the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was awarded strong short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more favorable scores in this category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more critical for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home was given its next most favorable category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of C in this category, which is an acceptable score. Long-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents requiring personal care. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 99.52607 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was inspections. This facility did not receive favorable government inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This ended up pulling down this facility's overall grade significantly. With places that received this bad of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility had 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 4 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
