Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively 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. Despite this deficiency, this place still had a relatively positive inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning residents even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best area turned out to be long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 70 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we looked at was short-term care, which proved to be a low point for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in short-term care. Short-term care grades are typically used to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. As you might expect, we learned that this nursing home provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.5 percent of its patients returning home.
