Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially would like to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this area. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We weren't able to locate information on deficiency's for this nursing home. We wish we had more information about this facility. Without having all of the deficiency data, it is a challenge to fully assess this facility in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also above average in the category of short-term care, where it was awarded a score of B. It performed more favorably than most facilities in this category. Our short-term care scores are probably most important for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational 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. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility is also strong in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. It outperformed most nursing homes in this category. When determining a facility's nursing grade, we assess the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the levels of training of those nurses. 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 nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest area was long-term care, which is the final category we scored. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated just 44.67005 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
