Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We would like to note that this facility's short-term care score exceeded its overall score. This nursing home earned a B+ in this category, which is a strong grade. In forming these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. There are many subcategories included in this grade. Many of these subcategories relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second worse category was long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.15385 percent of its patients, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our last category of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. This grade was very detrimental to this facility's overall score. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines in recent years of more than $100,000. This often indicates that a facility's bad performance has been an issue for several years.
