Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than its overall rating. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next best area we gave this facility in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our long-term care grade is often used to measure a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded is short-term care, which was this nursing home's weakest area. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is obviously very disappointing. Our short-term care grade is generally used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Not surprisingly, we learned that this facility offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
