Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this facility also was awarded favorable long-term care grades this year. In fact, we gave them one of our higher grades in that category, with a score of B+. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. Nursing scores are largely associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most facilities. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving residents more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our last area is short-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a B- in that area. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is generally a meaningful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.
