Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of A-. This is a much better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given an impressive score in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in this area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 95.87302 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this area. Our short-term care grade is generally used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The final category we analyzed was nursing. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. The nursing score assesses a handful of data points, however, the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of turning a resident more frequently.
