Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we did not have many favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall grade, it did receive a respectable short-term care score of B-. This boosted its profile to some extent. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

We also wanted to point out this nursing home's decent health inspections in recent years. We gave it somewhat respectable grade of C 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 those deficiencies. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This indicates inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. The nursing grade consists of several factors, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we analyzed was long-term care, in which this facility was given a very poor score here also. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
