Nurse Quality

Grade: B

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B in nursing. The nursing rating is based on several subcategories, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second best area was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is a more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the final category, this nursing home did not fare well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 99.01961 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
