Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this facility a grade of A- for its inspection grade. This is far better than its overall score. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was awarded strong long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more favorable scores in this area, with a B. This proved to be the nursing home's second highest score. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 68.35017 percent of its patients. This is a bit lower than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, this nursing home 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home received its next most favorable category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next category we analyzed is nursing, which ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a D in this category. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
