Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. We should point out that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this facility a strong score in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this category, which is one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia sadly can be a deadly condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In determining our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest category is short-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. In this category, we awarded this facility a D. Our short-term care scores are probably more meaningful for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home.
