Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area, with a grade of A. This is a notably better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. 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 always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a middle of the road grade in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. For residents in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 98.3871 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. The nursing score weighs many factors, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home really didn't fare well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's worst grade. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more critical for folks in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average nursing home. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home.
