Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A. This is a much better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an B-. In calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next most favorable category we gave this facility in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to our final area, this facility was awarded a C in short-term care, which is a respectable score. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
