Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to earning a strong overall grade, this facility fared even better in the area of inspections which is associated with the facility's recent government inspection reports. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that area, which is one of our highest grades. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also was awarded favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we gave them one of our more favorable scores in that area, with a score of B+. In forming our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to another strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our more positive grades in our long-term care category as well, with a grade of B. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients out of the hospital. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was given a respectable nursing grade. Even though this wasn't quite as good as a few of its other grades, this is still nothing to be ashamed of. There are many criteria included in this grade. Many of these criteria reflect levels of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this statistic.
