Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Although we weren't very complementary of this facility's overall score, it received an A- for short-term care. If it weren't for this category, this facility's profile would have been even worse. In determining our short-term care grades, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is often a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second highest area ended up being its long-term care grade, where it received a grade of C. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

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. Our nursing category consists of many subcategories, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Turning the last category of inspections, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our inspection category. This proved to be this facility's worst grade. We take a poor grade in this category very seriously. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. Generally, you should be more cautious when considering a nursing home that has severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This particular facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 14 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
