Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B in that area. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is more than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next most favorable area we gave this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 7.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility's weakest area was nursing, which is the final area we assessed. We gave it an F for this category. Despite multiple solid scores in other categories, this score is still alarming so we felt obligated to make sure you are aware. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This facility averaged only 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
