Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

It should also be noted that this facility's nursing score outpaced its overall rating. We gave it a B+ for its nursing grade, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing grade includes several datapoints, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these metrics as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we awarded this facility a B+ in our short-term care category. This is one of our better grades. In determining these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home performed better in this area than in its staffing levels. This place fared as well as just about any facility in the country with 57 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to point out that this facility received a lowly F for its inspection grade. An F in this area is alarming because it generally points to red flags on the nursing home's inspections. For places with bad inspection grades, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we would like to point out that this nursing home received significant government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This usually means that a facility's bad performance has been an issue for more than one year.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. This is clearly a significant concern. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 94.46809 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place also was not as bad as we expected at keeping its patients out of the hospital. While it had 1.94 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not bad due to it having more complex patients.
