Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it did receive a very good score in the area of inspections. We gave it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with too many deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this facility an impressive grade in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B in this area, which is one of our more impressive scores. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. When determining our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we analyzed was short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this area. Short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this nursing home offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
