Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. 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 shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a score of A-. Few nursing homes performed more favorably in this category. Our short-term care grades are important for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this nursing home a score of D. Our nursing grade weighs numerous subcategories. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This statistic is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the next area, this facility didn't fare well. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is this facility's worst category grade. Facilities that don't score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 66 percent of its residents. This is significantly below what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
