While we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we did give it a strong grade in the area of nursing, where it earned a B+. Our nursing score is largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides an impressive 4.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, this nursing home also fared even better in most of the quality measures we looked at. It had a low rate of patients sustaining both major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second best area came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. Our short-term care grades are vital for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next highest area we awarded this facility in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. Long-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of nursing services. This means a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted data regarding vaccinations. Lastly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The final category we looked at was inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being this facility's weakest link. We gave it a D in this area. Since this information is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our overall grade. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with a deficiency on its inspection report. Fortunately, it wasn't in a category that suggests that it caused a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 5 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
