Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A+. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Turning to the area of long-term care, we gave this facility a grade of A- in that category. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to make sure patients are kept in good health. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.967476 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third area we looked at is short-term care. Unfortunately, in that category, we awarded this facility an F. This is nowhere near as high as some of its other category scores. Quite frankly, this is a lower grade than we were expecting. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. We found that this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we graded was nursing, which ended up being this nursing home's least impressive area. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is certainly a major disappointment. We looked at the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this category. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Grade: D

In Covenant Home, 3.47% of Patients had Serious Falls

In Covenant Home, 15.79% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This tells you the percent of patients given antipsychotic drugs. While antipsychotic medications may be helpful for many patients, it is important to confirm these drugs are being used appropriately. In some situations, increased usage of these drugs may suggest a nursing home is using these medications to control patient behavior.

This figure indicates the percent of long-term patients receiving antianxiety medications.
