Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Inspection ratings are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was given impressive long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher grades in this category, with a B+. This turned out to be the facility's second best score. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.07692 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of D. There are a variety of factors included in this grade. Most of these criteria reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we rated was short-term care, which is this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. Unfortunately, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. Short-term care grades are generally used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
