Facility Inspections

Grade: A

On top of performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was awarded a favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it an above average score of B in this category. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure residents are well cared for. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 85.84906 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we expected but still a decent percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also was given favorable short-term care grades in our assessment. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with a grade of B. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. It doesn't appear that this nursing home provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our final category is nursing, where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses are with residents as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility provides only 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients at least once a day.
