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: B-plus

Turning to another strength for this facility, we awarded them one of our higher scores in our short-term care category as well, with a grade of B+. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It does not appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Turning to the fourth area, this facility was awarded a highly favorable long-term care score. We awarded it a B+ in this category, wrapping up one of our better report cards. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
