Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home has received nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We gave them an A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

This facility also excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing grades are primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility West Virginia in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Contributing to its first-rate resume, this nursing home also was awarded a dominant short-term care grade, with a grade of A-. With our short-term care score, we try to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. It does not appear that this facility submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

In the last area, this facility also was given a first-rate long-term care score, with a grade of B+. This topped off an elite profile. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
