Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. 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: B-plus

In addition, we awarded this facility a B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our better scores. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 96.072014 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 3.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was better than the majority of nursing homes due to it having more complex patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's third best score is short-term care. However, with a D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. With our short-term care rating, we endeavor to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 46 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these relatively poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest area is nursing, which is the final category we scored. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. We weighed the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses were with patients, in determining our rating in this area. Quantity of nursing care does not appear to be the source of this facility's poor nursing grade. This nursing home provides 4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is actually above average. In computing our scores, we add additional weight to hours performed by highly skilled nurses such as registered nurses. Despite performing well in terms of nursing hours, this facility was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining pressure ulcers and found that this place was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. Unfortunately, this statistic pulled down this facility's nursing grade substantially.
