Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not complementary of this facility's overall score, it actually earned an impressive long-term care score this year. We gave it a grade of B+ in this area. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.554565 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Surprisingly, this facility actually received a good score in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Few nursing homes that were this poor overall received multiple category grades of this caliber. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. In calculating a facility's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are with patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at is short-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this category, we weren't stunned to learn this nursing home was below average in two of the key staffing figures we focus on. The nursing home supplied far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home.
