Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We gave this facility an A- in short-term care. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Inspections is another category where this facility excelled. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A- for our inspections rating. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few relatively minor dings are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, nursing grades also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. This is certainly a major concern. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
