While this nursing home earned a decent overall grade, its inspections score is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that area with a B. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home an impressive score in long-term care. This nursing home received a B in this category, which is one of our higher scores. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. This facility did fine in this category as far as we could tell, but we do want to point out that we seem to be missing some information from this nursing home's long-term care metrics.
This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. When determining a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the levels of training of those nurses. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this statistic. Avoiding major falls is generally a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be prevented if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is considered to be a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. 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 that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
