Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also received a strong score in our short-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in that category. In our short-term care score, we try to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a solid score in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 89.01734 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was given an acceptable nursing score of C. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
