Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A-. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was given its second highest category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a respectable score. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The last item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the last category we scored. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a D. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
