Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. 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. Based on this, we had a generally favorable view of this nursing home's inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a respectable grade in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In our short-term care grade, we seek to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. The nursing grade is based on a handful of subcategories, most of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our next area is long-term care, in which we gave this nursing home a C in that category. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 92.30769 percent of its residents, which is a few points lower than we expected. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
