Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also wanted to point out that this facility was given favorable short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more impressive grades in this area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the nursing home's second strongest score. Our short-term care grade is often used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next most favorable area we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 95.696205 percent of its residents. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next area we looked at is nursing, which is a weak spot for this facility. We gave this facility a grade of just D in the area of nursing. There are a host of subcategories included in this area. Most of the factors are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
