Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A

This nursing home really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it earned a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. If it wasn't for this category, this facility's overall grade would have been much worse. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more critical for patients needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It does not look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's inspection score exceeded its overall score as well. We gave them one of our better grades in that area, with a B. This is a better grade than its overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing rating assesses several components, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the last category, this facility really didn't perform very well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is this nursing home's poorest grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 89.33333 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
