Even though we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a grade of B- in nursing. This grade is better than the facility's overall grade. The nursing grade considers several factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning a resident at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest category was its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this also affected quality of care. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 39.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded its third best category grade in the area of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is an acceptable score. Our long-term care ratings are important for people seeking personal care. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this facility submitted vaccination data. Lastly, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Turning to the final area of health inspections, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our inspection category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. To our surprise, this facility was assessed a category J through K deficiency, which are some of the worst possible deficiencies. This often indicates CMS identified a deficiency which places resident safety or health in imminent danger. Another red flag is that CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
