This nursing home's best category grade came in our short-term care rating. In that category, we gave this place a B. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

It should also be noted that this nursing home's inspection grade was strong as well. We awarded it a B for inspections, which is one of our better grades. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category typically have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Historical

This facility's third most favorable area came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. Long-term care grades are typically used to assess a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated just 80 percent of its patients. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. This facility didn't excel here either, with 4.55 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this figure is somewhat concerning, this statistic may be skewed for some nursing homes based on the medical complexity of residents.

The next area we graded is nursing. We gave it a B- in that category. This is a fair grade in this category. Nursing scores are largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Lastly, we also baked some quality-based metrics into our nursing ratings. This place was relatively weak in a few of the major metrics we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are typically good measures of the quality of nursing care provided.
