Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This facility received an elite long-term care score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an A in this category, which really bumped up its overall score. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths for the nursing home population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also performed well in inspections. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with an B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive area is short-term care, which is the final category we assessed. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a D. Short-term care grades are generally used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 2.7 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below the national average.
