Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility is also above average in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of B+. It outperformed most facilities in this area. In forming our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. While this didn't quite match its scores in some of the categories discussed above, this is still a decent score. There are a host of factors included in this grade. Most of the datapoints reflect nurse staffing. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we looked at is long-term care, which was this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this category. Naturally, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
