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. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second highest category ended up being long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. With our long-term care rating, we look at the volume of services offered by a facility, as well as a few quality metrics. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 78.78788 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. The nursing category assesses a handful of subcategories, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This particular nursing home provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below average. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next category we graded is short-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that area. Our short-term care grade is often used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that just 3.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
