Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B for our short-term care score. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. It doesn't look like this facility provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we gave this facility an B-. In calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with patients as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility earned mediocre inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility was hit with 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we rated was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is a poor grade. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
