Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that area, with a grade of A. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

We also awarded this facility a favorable score in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which turns out to be one of our better scores. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.18368 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a proven method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility received its next most favorable category score in the category of short-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this area, which is a respectable grade. Short-term care grades are crucial for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. It does not appear that this facility provided information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the final area, we awarded this nursing home a D in our nursing category. This was the facility's weakest category score. Of course, this score pulled down the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. Our nursing grade features a host of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
