Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this area generally have very 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Another strength of this nursing home is its high-end grade in long-term care. We gave it one of our best scores in that category, with a score of A-. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 87.53994 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is somewhat below what we expected but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, at least this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this facility an D. There are numerous subcategories included in this grade. Most of the factors reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we scored is short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a D in this area. Sadly, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is frequently a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. It looks like this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the staffing figures we looked at. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
