Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility a grade of A-. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a solid grade in the category of short-term care, with a B-. Short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we analyzed was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a decent grade of C. In determining our long-term care ratings, we assess the personal care received by the facility's patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 93.39207 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.06 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest category is nursing, which is the last area we analyzed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a D. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
