Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Even though we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it surprisingly earned a decent short-term care rating this year. We gave it a B in this area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is generally a useful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home actually performed well in inspections as well. We gave it a B- for this category, which is a respectable grade. Our inspection scores are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home received 15 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. The nursing score is based on many datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This statistic is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our final category, this facility didn't fare very well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility provided the vaccine to a relatively low 83.84615 percent of its patients, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
