Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A-. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple relatively minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B-. Our nursing rating consists of many factors, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we assessed is long-term care, where this facility was awarded a grade of B- in this category. In the category of long-term care, we assess the quantity of services provided by a facility, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 87.24832 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our next category is short-term care, in which we awarded this facility a grade of B- in that area. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
