Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's long-term care score turns out to be one of its better features. The nursing home was awarded a B- in this category. Our long-term care grade is used to grade a nursing home's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 81.2065 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating analyzes many components, however, the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our final category is short-term care, in which we awarded this facility a grade of C in this category. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
