Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its decent overall score, we gave this facility an A for our inspections rating. This score is far better than its overall grade. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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-plus

This nursing home also received a strong grade in our nursing category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B+ in this area. Our nursing grade is largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this nursing home excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving residents more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also would like to point out that this nursing home was awarded favorable short-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our better grades in this category, with a B. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we analyzed was long-term care, which is this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in this category. Of course, this grade hurt the facility's overall grade to some degree. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to only 80.653946 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
