Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

One of the reasons this is a decent facility is that it received a very favorable inspection grade. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given an impressive short-term care score. In fact, we gave them a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our more favorable scores. Our short-term care grade is generally used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we graded was long-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that area. Sadly, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 91 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
