Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We want to point out that this facility earned a much better grade for short-term care than its overall score. In fact, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. Our short-term care grades are presumably most important for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It does not appear that this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This facility also performed well in the area of inspections. It received one of our best scores in that area with an B+. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second least favorable category was long-term care, where it received just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we rated is nursing, which was this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
