Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility one of our better grades in the area of short-term care, where it earned an A. This is much better than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
This facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a policy of moving residents more often.

Vaccination is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the nursing home population.

It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning our last category of inspections, we gave this nursing home just a D. This turned out to be this nursing home's worst grade and it really pulled its overall grade down. Our inspection score is based on the facility's inspection reports. Since the data is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in overall grade. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines recently exceeding $50,000. This usually means that CMS inspectors became frustrated after several years of failed inspections.
