Nurse Quality

Grade: A

On top of earning a great overall grade, this facility really excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an A. Few nursing homes fared better in this category. The nursing grade analyzes a handful of datapoints, however, the main consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's long-term care score turns out to be one of its better grades. The nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this category. Our long-term care grade assesses a nursing home's personal care rather than the highly skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 76.25202 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third best area is its short-term care grade, where it was given a C. Our short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 3.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last category of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. This score was very detrimental to this facility's overall score. For nursing homes with bad inspection scores, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home had a deficiency by CMS. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in a category that suggests that it posed a risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines in recent years of over $100,000. This often suggests that a poor performance spanned multiple years.
