Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was given an impressive score in our long-term care category. We awarded this nursing home a better than average grade of B+ in that category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of short-term care, this nursing home received just a D in that category. Short-term care grades are generally used to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the last category, this facility did not fare very well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is this nursing home's weakest grade. The nursing grade consists of a handful of factors, however, the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
