Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We awarded this nursing home one of our higher grades in short-term care, where it received a grade of A-. This is far better than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's inspection grade also was better than its overall grade. Due to a quality inspection report this year, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in calculating our rating in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we looked at was long-term care, which turned out to be a weak link for this facility. We gave this facility an D for our long-term care category. For patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
