Short-term Care Quality
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of short-term care. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is considered to be a reliable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
We actually gave this facility a very solid score in the area of inspections as well. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we graded was long-term care, which proved to be a weak link for this facility. We gave this facility a D for our long-term care category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 91.47727 percent of its patients, which is slightly less than we expected. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
