Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection score. Its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 5 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this area. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving patients more frequently.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to point out that this nursing home was awarded positive long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our higher scores in this area, with a grade of B. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 95.37572 percent of its patients, which is higher than most nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the last category we scored. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is generally a useful assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this facility was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
