Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category tend to have very few 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

To complement its strong performance in other categories, we gave this facility an B+ for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are primarily associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Turning to an additional strength for this nursing home, we awarded them one of our better scores in our long-term care category as well, with a B. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is significantly higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our next category, this nursing home was given an acceptable short-term care score of B-. In computing these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. We weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
