Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent nursing home is it received a very favorable inspection score. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B+. Inspection ratings are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given a favorable short-term care score. Indeed, we awarded them a grade of B+ in this category, which happens to be one of our better. Our short-term care grades are likely more critical for folks requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. The nursing grade consists of a handful of components, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's weakest area is long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. We gave it an abysmal F in this category. Even with several decent grades in other categories, this score is nevertheless alarming so we would like to to make a note of it. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 95.56962 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
