Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place is a quality facility is that it received a very impressive inspection score. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category. In that area, we awarded this facility an A+. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was awarded a favorable short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave it an above average score of B+ in this area. Our short-term care grade is often employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. This wasn't quite as good as some of its other scores, but a grade in this range is not the end of the world. In computing a facility's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we looked at was long-term care, was this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. This really is one of just a couple of weak points in a quality profile. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 95.945946 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
