Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We would like to point out that this facility received favorable marks in the area of short-term care this year. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with a B. This proved to be the facility's best score and helped its profile overall. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is typically a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's inspection rating exceeded its overall grade as well. We awarded them one of our better grades in that category, with a grade of B. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was hit with 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident health or safety. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B in our nursing category. This is one of our better grades. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility 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 frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning a patient more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we looked at is long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. Long-term care scores are meaningful for individuals needing non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
