Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection score was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A. Inspection scores are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this area have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a solid grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Long-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of care. This means a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 95.187164 percent of its patients. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third highest category ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was given a grade of C. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation To offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our fourth area, we gave this facility a D for the area of nursing. This is the facility's worst category grade. The nursing rating includes several factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
