Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, we awarded it a grade of B- for long-term care. This boosted its overall profile to an extent. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 69.43396 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is several points lower than average. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We actually gave this facility a very solid score in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we gave it a grade of B- in this category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in this category. Short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this facility offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the fourth area, this facility did not fare very well here either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as bad as it gets. In computing our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
