Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's higher category scores was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually outpaced most facilities in this area. In forming these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. This nursing home offered more physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. The nursing rating is based on many factors, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided 4.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This was well above average. Furthermore, a significant portion of this care was provided by registered nurses, which are highly skilled nurses. These are both impressive figures. Finally, we also factored some quality-based metrics into our nursing grades. Specifically, we looked at the percent of residents who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these metrics as reliable measures of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's worst category is long-term care, which is the last area we assessed. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area. In spite of multiple acceptable scores in other categories, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we would like to to draw your attention to it. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 92.36641 percent of its patients. This is a bit below what we expected but still a decent percentage. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.21 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.

Grade: D

In Alexandria Care Center, 13.18% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

However, some facilities may need to rely on these drugs due to having more residents suffering from cognitive disorders.
