Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with its decent overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than its overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best area is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for patients requiring more conventional services related to personal care. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 91.20235 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points below what we expected but still a decent percentage. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we looked at was short-term care, where this facility was awarded a C in this category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The last area we analyzed was nursing, which is a weak link for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of just D in our nursing category. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are with patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. 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 calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
