Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility an A+ for its inspection grade. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better grades in this area typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS didn't consider 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: B-plus

Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B+. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 94.70046 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to minimize unnecessary hospitalizations for the elderly population. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this facility an impressive grade of D. The nursing score consists of quite a few datapoints, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our last area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of short-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category grade. Naturally, this grade hurt the nursing home's overall grade a bit. In computing these short-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
