Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care score this year. We gave it a B- in that category. Our short-term care scores are vital for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This facility actually performed well in inspections also. We gave it a B- for that category, which is a respectable score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. The nursing score is based on quite a few factors, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the fourth area, we gave this facility a D in long-term care. This is the facility's worst category grade. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.765434 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
