Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher grades in that category, with an A. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was awarded a favorable long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of B in that category, which happens to be one of our better. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.25581 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to minimize negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. In calculating our nursing ratings, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the final area, this facility really did not fare very well. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is its worst grade. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its weak grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care score.
