Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its nearly flawless health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to point out that this nursing home was awarded strong short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our higher scores in this category, with a B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second highest score. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. When computing a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded is long-term care. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is a poor score. This is obviously a major disappointment. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 93.16239 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
