Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

This nursing home received a quality overall grade as described above, but we especially wanted to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we have deficiency data for this facility. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, this nursing home also was given favorable long-term care scores this year. In fact, we awarded it one of our higher grades in that area, with a score of B+. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 93.650795 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a bit lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities next best category is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this category. In computing our short-term care ratings, we size up the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is often a useful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our next category, this facility received a decent nursing score of C. Nursing scores are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This place averages 0.6 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a patient even once per day.
