Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home really excelled in our long-term care category. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that area. This helped its overall profile. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.47899 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. There are a host of criteria included in this area. Many of the criteria relate to staffing levels. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place 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 generally be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third best category was short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In determining these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our final category of inspections, this nursing home received an F here. This grade was very detrimental to this facility's overall grade. With facilities that received this poor of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, this place has been assessed large government fines in the past few years.
