Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A-. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category usually have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an B-. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. Our short-term care grades are critical for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the next area, we awarded this facility a D in our long-term care category. This was the facility's worst category score. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 92.01031 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
