Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We gave this nursing home a grade of A for our long-term care score. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.96907 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also performed well in the area of inspections. It received one of our highest scores in that area with an B+. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe 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: F

Another issue is the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we were not stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in multiple staffing metrics we assess. It offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the next area, this nursing home really did not perform well. Due to an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is this nursing home's worst grade. We assessed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with residents, in computing our grade in this category. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
