This facility's best category score came in nursing. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this area. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning patients more often.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a positive score in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better scores. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. This place seems like a good starting point if you're looking for a long-term care facility.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its third highest category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is a decent grade. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 39.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
The last category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it an F in this category. This ended up pulling down this facility's overall score significantly. When a nursing home has this bad of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home was hit with one deficiency by CMS. Fortunately, it was not in a category that suggests that it posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 5 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
