Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to point out that this facility outperformed its overall score in the area of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with an A+. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. 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. Based on this, we had positive view of this nursing home's inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a middle of the road score in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Long-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of care. This means a broad range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated just 89.620255 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road score in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we analyzed was nursing, which turned out to be this facility's weakest category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this area. There are numerous subcategories included in this grade. Most of the criteria reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this nursing home also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of residents sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility.
