Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the area of long-term care, we gave this facility a score of A- in that area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is usually a good sign for patient care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. We gave this nursing home an D. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are with residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's weakest area is short-term care, which is the last category we scored. We gave it a lowly F for this area. Despite several decent scores in other categories, this score is nevertheless alarming so we felt obligated to make sure you are aware. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is frequently a reliable assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. We found that this place was below average in several staffing metrics we focus on. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.1 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
