Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home received its second highest category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a C in this category, which is a decent score. Our long-term care ratings are meaningful for patients in need of personal care. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 93.80403 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points lower than we expected but still a decent figure. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area. This is often an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a patient more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we assessed is short-term care, which ended up being this facility's weakest area. We awarded this facility a D in that category. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Considering its abysmal grade in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
