Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this facility's more favorable category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B+. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this category. For patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 80.1214 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing grade. We gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. When calculating a facility's nursing score, we look at the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the level of skill of the nurses. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we graded was short-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D in the area of short-term care, rendering this the nursing home's worst category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we discovered that this facility offers fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
