Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite minor. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next highest category turned out to be its long-term care score, where it was awarded a C. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 82.6484 percent of its patients. This is several points below what we expected. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next category we assessed was nursing, which turned out to be a weak link for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of just D in our nursing category. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in calculating our score in this area. This place offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
