Short-term Care Quality
We want to point out that this facility received a far better grade for short-term care than it received overall. In fact, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a score of A-. Short-term care grades are typically used to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Inspections is another area where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we gave this facility an B+ for our inspections category. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving a resident more often.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive area is long-term care, which is the last category we assessed. In this area, we gave this nursing home an D. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 94 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
