Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. Inspection ratings are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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. Based on this, we still had favorable view of this nursing home's inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best area turned out to be short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of long-term care, this nursing home received a grade of just D in this area. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an above average statistic. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we looked at was nursing, which is this nursing home's worst area. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is certainly very disappointing. The nursing score includes many data points. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
