Although we gave this facility a weak overall grade, we awarded it a somewhat respectable grade in the category of inspections, where we gave it a B-. This was certainly better than its other categories. Inspection grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in that category. In the area of long-term care, we analyze the amount of services provided by a nursing home, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We weren't able to track down information on vaccination rates. Lastly, this facility 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 figure.
