Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we gave this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more favorable scores. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 78.78788 percent of its residents. This is a few points lower than we anticipated but still a decent figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

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. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the number of hours nurses spend with patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving residents at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we analyzed was short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in that category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this area. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
