Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we were not complementary of this facility's overall score, it received an impressive nursing grade this year. We gave it a B in this area. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Surprisingly, this facility actually received a good grade in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better grades. Few facilities that were this poor overall received multiple category grades of this caliber. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. Unfortunately, this place was assessed a category L deficiency, which was not what we expected given its inspection rating. These are the worst type of deficiencies. This category of deficiency indicates the government inspectors uncovered a widespread deficiency putting patient safety or health in immediate jeopardy. Even a single serious deficiency of this nature should be taken seriously. While other aspects of this nursing home's inspection report were favorable, we have some reservations.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next highest area ended up being short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. In forming these short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored was long-term care, where this facility was given a rock bottom grade in this area as well. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Nursing homes that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 88.73239 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
