Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although this facility's overall grade was abysmal, it didn't perform terribly in short-term care. We gave it a B- for that category, which isn't bad. However, this was not enough to save its otherwise poor profile. In determining these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

This place actually performed well in the area of inspections also. In fact, we awarded it a B- for this category, which is a respectable grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. We assessed the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses were with residents, in calculating our rating in this category. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for the area of long-term care. This was the facility's least impressive category score. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 93.43434 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly lower than we anticipated but still a respectable figure. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
