Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home an impressive grade of A- in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This facility is the gold standard in terms of skilled nursing staffing. It provided approximately 50% more registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that it fared better than most nursing homes in this area with 54.8 percent of its residents returning home. At most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.
The second highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per patient per day. At least one quarter of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. This is a high percentage of skilled nursing care. We weight these hours more in computing our nursing scores. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in some quality-focused statistics. Specifically, we look at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these datapoints as good measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Next we looked at this facility's inspection grade This is based on the nursing home's recent government inspections. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this category. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent danger to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, this facility really didn't fare very well. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is its poorest category grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 79.6875 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.82 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
