Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its decent overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A for its inspection grade. This is far more impressive than its overall grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Remember that deficiency-free inspections are uncommon in this industry.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's more favorable category scores came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are kept in good health. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 82.27425 percent of its residents against pneumonia. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. Our nursing grade consists of many factors, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we scored is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is not a bad grade in this area. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
