Facility Inspections

B-

While we gave this place a weak overall rating, we actually awarded it a fairly respectable score in the area of inspections, where it received a B-. This was quite a bit better than its other category grades. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

C

This facility's short-term care grade ended up being one of its better features. The facility was given a C in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

C

The third category we graded was long-term care, where this facility was given a grade of C in this area. Our long-term care grades are more critical for folks needing more conventional assistance associated with activities of daily living. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We weren't able to track down this facility's vaccination rates. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

C

The next area we rated is nursing. We gave this facility a grade of C in that category. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided 3.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed a few nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these subcategories. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric. This is usually a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning a patient more often.
