Nurse Quality

Grade: A

The main reason this turned out to be a great nursing home is that it received an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A. The nursing rating features many subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received impressive short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a B+. This proved to be the facility's second strongest score. Our short-term care scores are meaningful for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a solid score in the area of long-term care, with a grade of B-. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 25.657894 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points lower than the national average. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. This pulled down this nursing home's overall score significantly. For places with bad inspection ratings, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by CMS had potential to create actual harm to patients. Finally, this facility also received 3 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
