Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive grades. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.017 percent of its patients, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is based on several datapoints, however, the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a relatively low total compared with most other facilities. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this metric. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we analyzed is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. This is a decent grade in this category. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. It doesn't look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
