Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home earned an elite short-term care grade. In fact, we gave this facility an A in this category, which really helped out its overall score. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A

Inspections is another area where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections category. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area usually have very few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In determining our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the fourth area, this facility did not fare very well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this was its weakest grade. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 73.26203 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
