Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this category with an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite insignificant. 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. We scrutinized the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Lastly, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we analyzed is long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In forming our long-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.03846 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to the next area, this nursing home received a grade of C in short-term care, which is a decent rating. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 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.
