Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than its overall rating. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of C. In determining our long-term care scores, we size up the personal care offered to the nursing home's residents. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated only 87.982834 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third category we looked at was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a C. Short-term care grades are commonly used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The last category we scored was nursing, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a D in this area. In computing a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This particular nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This statistic is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
