While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B- for inspections. This grade is better than the place's overall score. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. When computing our nursing scores, we factor in both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 3.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best category is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is considered to be a meaningful assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is long-term care. We gave it a C in that category. This is a fair grade in this category. In computing these long-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on its vaccination levels. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
