Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We gave this nursing home one of our higher grades in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A-. This is far better than its overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this nursing home also excelled in inspections, where it earned an B+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our inspection scores are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. When determining a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the amount of time nurses are with patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This place averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is a very low figure. Lastly, although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the next area, this facility really didn't perform well. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this was its weakest grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 82.833786 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
