Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Our inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. We should point out that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. It actually fared better than most nursing homes in this area. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more important for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We weren't able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also gave this nursing home a positive grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this category, which turns out to be one of our higher scores. Nursing homes that excel in this category tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.62963 percent of its residents. This is a great way to minimize unnecessary deaths for the elderly population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we looked at is nursing. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. This is obviously a significant concern. The nursing rating includes quite a few subcategories, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
