Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A-. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category generally have few severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the category of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B. In forming our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. It does not appear that this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also received an elite nursing score. We gave this facility a score of D. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we rated was long-term care, which proved to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. We were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 70.987656 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
