Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to faring well overall, this facility earned a nearly flawless inspection report. Consequently, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. Our inspection scores are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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

This facility received impressive grades in the area of long-term care as well. In fact, we awarded it one of our highest scores in that category with a area of A-. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 84.61538 percent of its patients, which is a few points less than we expected. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we graded was short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of B-. Our short-term care grade is often employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.5 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: B-minus

Turning to the final category, this facility was given an acceptable nursing grade. While this isn't quite as good as many of its other scores, this is still not the end of the world. In determining our nursing ratings, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
