Facility Inspections


While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with an A-. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid facilities that had too many deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality


Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility received a grade of just D in this area. As it turns out, this ended up being one of its best areas. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. We would have to do a little more research into this nursing home before expressing a stronger opinion on this category as it looks like we are missing a few datapoints for long-term care.

Short-term Care Quality


Sadly, this nursing home only received a D for its short-term care rating, which is well below average in this category. In computing these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality


The final area we assessed was nursing, is this facility's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This facility provided 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
