Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this area with an A+. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also received a favorable grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility a better than average grade of B+ in that area. Nursing homes that do well in this category tend to provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home's received a poor short-term care grade where it received an F. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Not surprisingly, we learned that this place provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we analyzed was nursing. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a poor grade. This is certainly a significant concern. In calculating a facility's nursing rating, we look at the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
