Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We want to point out that this nursing home outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our highest grades in this area with a grade of A. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this area typically have few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing score. In fact, we gave this facility an D. The nursing score considers a host of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded is long-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is an abysmal score. This is clearly a major disappointment. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
