Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we did not give this nursing home a good overall score, we surprisingly gave it a fairly strong score in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of B. This is better than most nursing homes in this category. This propped up an otherwise poor profile. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 47.183098 percent of its residents, which is somewhat lower than we were hoping for. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Surprisingly, this facility actually received a good score in inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Not many nursing homes that were this poor overall received multiple category grades of this caliber. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this facility only earned a D for its short-term care score, which is not one of our better scores. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a grade in this range in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this place was well below average in many staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we graded is nursing. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in this area. Our nursing score looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
