Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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 still had a generally favorable view of this facility's inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. There are a host of subcategories within this area. Most of the subcategories are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this nursing home 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 generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we gave this facility a B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable grades. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 83.45864 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our last area, this facility did not perform well. With a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is this facility's worst grade. Our short-term care scores are vital for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we were not shocked to learn that this place was well below average in several staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 2 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
