Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better scores in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to another strength for this facility, we gave it a superb long-term care score. Indeed, we awarded this nursing home a score of A-. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are kept in good health. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to minimize unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility received just a D in that category. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. In this nursing home's case, it looks like it offers fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the fourth category, this nursing home really did not perform very well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is its worst category. The nursing category analyzes several data points, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. On top of its below average nursing hours, this place received suboptimal marks in several of the quality-based metrics we considered in calculating our nursing scores. We found that a higher percentage of this place's residents experienced falls leading to serious injury.
