Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to another strength for this nursing home, it also received a superb long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave this nursing home a grade of A-. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 88.94231 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is slightly below what we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Nursing scores are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the next area, we awarded this facility a D in the area of short-term care. This was the facility's worst category rating. Sadly, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
