Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best grade came in long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B+. It actually outperformed most facilities in this area. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. 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 facility provided the vaccine to 85.07462 percent of its residents. This is somewhat less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third most favorable category we gave this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are typically employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our fourth area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for nursing. This is the nursing home's worst category score. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses spend with patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. 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 looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
