Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's short-term care grade turns out to be one of its best features. The nursing home received a B- in this area. Short-term care grades are typically used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our long-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.21569 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The last category we looked at was nursing, which was a weak spot for this facility. We gave this facility a D in the area of nursing. There are a host of criteria within this grade. Many of these data points relate to nurse staffing. This facility averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
