Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's short-term care grade is more impressive than its overall grade. It received one of our better scores in that category with a B+. In forming these short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's second best category is inspections. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. We looked at the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses were with residents, in determining our score in this area. This facility provides only 0 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we scored is long-term care, which proved to be a low point for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of just D in long-term care. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 78.97727 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
