Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Even though we were not high on this facility's overall score, it actually received an impressive short-term care rating this year. We awarded it a B in this category, which proved to be a rare shining light in its profile. Our short-term care grades are likely more critical for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home boosted its score in this category by offering more physical therapy hours to its residents than the average facility. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. It fared better than most nursing homes in this area with 49.5 percent of its patients returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this facility a strong grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B. This is better than most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing rating includes a handful of factors, many of which are based on nursing hours. With 4.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home surpassed the national average. Finally, this place also performed well in many of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the number of its residents suffering falls leading to major injury, this facility outpaced the national average. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next highest area ended up being its long-term care score, where it was awarded a C. With our long-term care assessment, we focus on the sheer volume of services offered by a facility, as well as a few qualitative datapoints. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. While it had 1.93 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes due to it having more complicated patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning the final category of inspections, this nursing home fared very poorly. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection rating. This happens to be our most heavily weighted category in our overall grading system. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility had 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 19 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
