Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. Nursing grades are mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third area we looked at was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a decent grade of B-. Our long-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's amount of nursing care. This means a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 95.778366 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final category we assessed. In this category, we gave this nursing home a D. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
