Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this facility'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. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable category was its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. Our long-term care scores are based on the nursing home's amount of care. This includes a broad range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 89.08046 percent of its patients. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at is short-term care, where this facility was given a C in this area. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final area we analyzed is nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. This is a fair grade in this area. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to patients as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
