Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for short-term care. Short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to award this nursing home a relatively favorable government inspection grade as well. We gave it a respectable grade of B- in this category, which was much better than its overall grade. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored is long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.46524 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
