Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B-. In calculating our nursing ratings, we assess both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provided just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, we also factored in some quality-based statistics in this category. While this place did not rank well in terms of nursing hours per resident, it fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In terms of the percentage of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, this place fared better than average. This is often a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented with better nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this nursing home only received a D for its long-term care score, which is not one of our better scores. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 1.55 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded is short-term care. We gave it an F in this area, which is a poor score. This is clearly a major concern. Our short-term care scores are critical for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With its weak rating in this area, we weren't shocked to find this place offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 34.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
