Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second most favorable area was short-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this area. Our short-term care grades are critical for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as 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. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third best area we awarded this facility in any category came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a C. Long-term care grades focus on a nursing home's personal care rather than the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an above average percentage. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last category we analyzed was nursing. We awarded this nursing home a C in that area. We looked at the licensure of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this category. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.
