Long-term Care Quality

B+
Oct 18: FNov 18: FDec 18: FJan 19: FFeb 19: FJan 20: B+
Historical

This nursing home's overall grade was helped by a strong long-term care rating. We gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a B+. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.82353 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Historical

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. Nursing grades are primarily associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these areas as good measures of the quality of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Historical

We also gave this facility a middle of the pack grade in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Short-term care grades are often used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 42.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Oct 18: FNov 18: FDec 18: FJan 19: FFeb 19: FJan 20: F
Historical

The last category we looked at was inspections. Unfortunately, this facility didn't receive favorable inspections in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F in this area. Since this data is collected by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight a poor performance in this area. This really dragged down this facility's overall score. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular facility was hit with 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 9 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
