Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. Few facilities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given positive short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of B. This proved to be the nursing home's second strongest score. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we analyzed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a solid grade of B-. Long-term care grades are typically used to score a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This facility was able to keep its residents 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

Switching gears to the final category, this nursing home was given a C in nursing, which is generally a decent score. Our nursing rating considers a variety of data points. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Lastly, nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
