Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care. We gave it an A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. This really boosted its overall profile. In determining our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This category is more often than not a reliable measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. This facility is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. It provided about 50% more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. This is what we like to find when grading a nursing home in this category. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that it outperformed the vast majority of facilities with 72.6 percent of its patients returning home.

Grade: A

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an A. We assessed the licensure of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home provides an impressive 4.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Of this total, nearly one fourth of the hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. Lastly, this facility appears to be above average in each of the major quality-based metrics we assessed in this category. It fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we gave it a top-shelf long-term care score. Indeed, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 98.611115 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a life or death ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on our final category of inspections, this nursing home received a grade that's as bad as it gets. With an F in the inspection category, this facility's overall grade was pulled down significantly. For nursing homes that received this poor of an inspection score, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to patient safety or health. However, there were not too many highlights for this nursing home in this area.
