Facility Inspections


Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this place still had a relatively favorable inspection report.

Nurse Quality


One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an C. Our nursing grade assesses a handful of subcategories, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality


This facilities next best area was long-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this category. In our long-term care score, we look at the amount of services provided by a nursing home, along with a handful of qualitative statistics. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's vaccination rates. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality


This facility's worst category was short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. For this area, we gave this facility a D. With our short-term care rating, we try to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical nursing home. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.
