Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those 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 health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility was awarded its second highest category score in the category of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this category, which is an acceptable grade. In determining our long-term care scores, we assess the personal care received by a facility's patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.35683 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few subcategories, however, the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our last category, this nursing home really didn't perform very well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this was its poorest category grade. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score in this range in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this nursing home was well below average in the two key staffing figures we focus on. It provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Center on Aging and Health Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: C

In Center on Aging and Health, 9.06% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This tells you the percentage of residents that sustained a pressure ulcer. Pressure ulcers are skin damage due to remaining in one position for an excessive period of time.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: B-minus

In Center on Aging and Health, 3.4% of Patients had Serious Falls

This is the percent of patients that have had a fall leading to severe injury.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: C

In Center on Aging and Health, 3.28% of Patients had UTIs

This indicates the percent of patients who suffered from a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are routinely the result of worse hygiene protocols. Better hygiene protocols minimizes the number likelihood of residents sustaining infections. Note that this statistic is sometimes skewed by the fact that nursing homes have incongruent reporting standards for urinary tract infections.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: F

In Center on Aging and Health, 15.49% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This indicates the percent of residents who were given antipsychotic drugs. Antipsychotic drugs are given to residents for a variety of medical conditions, including dementia. Tragically, in some cases, excessive reliance on these medications may suggest a facility is using these medications to control patient behavior.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Anxiety Medication

Grade: F

In Center on Aging and Health, 29.7% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This statistic is an indication of the percent of long-term patients that were prescribed antianxiety medication. These drugs are commonly given to patients experiencing anxiety or depression.

Managing Depression Among Residents

Grade: F

In Center on Aging and Health, 8.67% of Patients

Measures the percentage of long-term residents demonstrating signs of depression.

Appropriate Vaccine Usage

Grade: B-plus

In Center on Aging and Health, 89.63% of Patients

This indicates the percent of residents who were given the flu and pneumonia vaccines. High vaccination rates should be demanded by residents.

Residents Maintain Autonomy

Grade: B-minus

In Center on Aging and Health, 16.71% Percentage of Patients

This indicates the percent of patients that needed more assistance with activities of daily living over time.

Ability to Keep Residents Mobile

Grade: B-minus

In Center on Aging and Health, 26.22% Percentage of Residents

This indicates the percent of patients that were able to retain mobility over time. Optimizing mobility can be a great sign for residents' health.

Hospitalizations

Grade: B-plus

In Center on Aging and Health, 1.21 Hospitalizations per 1,000 resident days

This indicates the number of hospitalizations per 1,000 days of care.

Short-term Care: Rehospitalizations

Grade: B-plus

In Center on Aging and Health, 26.22 Percentage of Residents Rehospitalized

This is the number of rehospitalizations per thousand days of short-term care.

Short-term Care: ER Visits

Grade: B

In Center on Aging and Health, 11.37 Percentage of Patients

This is the number of times residents are sent to the emergency room per thousand days of short-term care. There is generally a correlation between keeping patients out of the emergency room and the overall quality of rehabilitation.

Short-term Care: Facilitates Functional Improvement

Grade: B-plus

In Center on Aging and Health, 72.9% Percentage of Resident

Measures the percent of short-term residents who experienced functional improvements, such as with activities of daily living. Some experts argue that this is a reasonable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation performance.
