Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this nursing home an A- for its inspection grade. This score is far better than the facility's overall rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 15 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also received a strong grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B+ in that category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and indicates that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. Although it had 2.69 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score was close to the middle of the pack due to it having more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. In determining our nursing scores, we analyze both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 2.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a resident even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last category we rated is short-term care, turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. This really is one of the few weak points on an otherwise strong report card. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
