Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This place's best category grade came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care grades are critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility performed well in our nursing category. We gave it an B- for that category, which is one of our highest grades. Nursing grades are largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. 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. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our inspection category, it appears this facility has earned respectable inspections in recent years as well. We gave it a B- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the last area, we awarded this facility a D for our long-term care category. This was the facility's weakest category score. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
