Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. Its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A-. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given an impressive short-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a grade of B in this category, which is one of our more favorable scores. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. It does not appear that this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we awarded this nursing home a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable scores. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 70.16393 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to the last area, this facility was awarded a decent nursing score of C. Nursing scores are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
