Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received a strong overall grade as described above, but we especially want to emphasize its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it an A+ in this area. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area usually have very 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: A

Among this nursing home's other accomplishments is its first-rate long-term care grade. It received one of our most impressive scores in that area, with a grade of A. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are well cared for. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.22222 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 1.69 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the category of nursing care, this facility didn't perform quite as well in this area as some of the categories discussed above. Nevertheless, a grade of C in this category is by no means a bad score. Our nursing score is based on quite a few subcategories, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at a few nursing quality measures and this place excelled in some of these statistics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the final category, we awarded this facility a D in the area of short-term care. This was the nursing home's worst category score. Of course, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. It performed better in this area, with 52 percent of its residents returning home.
