Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category tend to have few of these 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: B-plus

Additionally, we awarded this nursing home a B+ in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive grades. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 90.97222 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points less than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's third best score was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared relatively badly. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this facility's case, it looks like it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we rated is nursing, which proved to be this facility's worst category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the facility's overall grade a bit. There are quite a few criteria included in this grade. Most of the data points are tied to staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
