Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some are relatively insignificant. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. This is a great sign for this facility.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best area is its short-term care score, where it received a B-. In determining our short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is frequently a meaningful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 6.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. The nursing rating consists of quite a few components, however, the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our final area, this nursing home was given an acceptable long-term care score of C. Long-term care grades are generally used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 94.09449 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
