Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility received a short-term care score which is stronger than its overall score. We awarded this nursing home a B+ in this area. This really helped its overall profile. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home earned an impressive grade of B in the category of nursing. Our nursing rating is largely based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home 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 policy of turning residents at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

It should also be noted that this facility's inspection score was strong as well. In fact, we awarded it a B for its inspection reports, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the last category, this nursing home didn't perform very well. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this was its weakest grade. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.305084 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
