Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility's long-term care rating was better than its overall score. In fact, we awarded it a B for its long-term care score. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This facility's second best category grade came in the area of government inspections. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable category is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In forming these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our last category is nursing, in which we gave this facility a B- in this category. In calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
