Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+ in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable scores. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. It does not appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we considered the percentage 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

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. The nursing grade features a number of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides only 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we rated is long-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a D in that area. Sadly, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall grade a bit. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 93.385216 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
