Facility Inspections

Grade: A

One of the reasons this ended up being a quality nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In that category, we gave it a grade of A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home really excelled in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a score of A-. Very few facilities performed more favorably in this area. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.14286 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the third area, this nursing home also received a score of B for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. Short-term care grades are generally employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we graded was nursing, where this nursing home received a B-. Although this ended up being its lowest category score, this is still not a major area of concern. Our nursing grade focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a resident more frequently.
