Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality nursing home is that it earned an impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections turned out to be its best category grade. In this category, we gave it an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. 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

Another one of this nursing home's impressive category scores came in the area of long-term care. We awarded them one of our stronger grades in that category, with a score of B+. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 97.256096 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third best area came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Our short-term care scores are likely most important for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. It doesn't appear that this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our next area, we gave this facility a D for the area of nursing. This is the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Sadly, this grade hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients and the level of licensure of those nurses. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
