Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to performing well in its overall grade, this facility performed at an even higher level in the area of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that category with a score of A. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this category tend to have few of these severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

Contributing to this facility's list of strengths, it also was given a very favorable long-term care grade. We awarded them a dominant grade of A in this category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is significantly higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. 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 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third category we graded is short-term care, where this nursing home received a C in this category. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. It doesn't look like this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 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: C

Turning to the fourth category, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable nursing grade of C. We assessed the qualifications of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our score in this area. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this area. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a resident even once per day.
