Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B+. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.37037 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia sadly can be a life threatening illness for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Next we looked at nursing grades, where this nursing home received an F, which is a rock bottom grade. This area was definitely not a strength for this facility. There are a number of criteria included in this category. Most of the datapoints are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility's weakest area was short-term care, which is the final area we assessed. We gave it an abysmal F for this category. Despite some solid scores in other categories, this grade is still of a concern so we would like to to make a note of it. In calculating our short-term care scores, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is generally a reliable assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. 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 facility. We found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
