Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home received its second best category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a respectable score. In calculating our long-term care scores, we size up the assistance with daily living offered to a facility's patients. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 99.702675 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 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 score. In fact, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. Our nursing score analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. 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. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is certainly a major disappointment. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 2.2 percent of its patients returning home.
