Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second best category was its long-term care grade, where it received a B-. Long-term care grades are based in part on the facility's volume of care. This means a broad range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 75 percent of its residents against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. When computing our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we scored was short-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in that category. Our short-term care grades are probably more meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With its score in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
