Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home earned an elite long-term care score. In fact, we gave this facility a grade of A- in this category, which really helped out its overall score. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 91.791046 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we anticipated but still a decent figure. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's second best category grade came in the area of government inspections. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This facility offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's worst area was short-term care, which is the final category we assessed. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category. Even with several acceptable scores in other areas, this grade is still of a concern so we felt obligated to make a note of it. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With its abysmal rating in this area, we were not surprised to find this place provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
