Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility performed well in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it an B- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Nursing scores are primarily associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities next most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this area. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's weakest area was long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category. Despite several decent scores in other categories, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we would like to to point it out. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 70 percent of its patients, which is somewhat concerning. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
