Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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. Based on this, we still had a generally positive view of this nursing home's inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this area. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities next most favorable area is short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this area. Our short-term care grade is typically used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next category we graded was nursing, which turned out to be a weak link for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D for the area of nursing. In computing our nursing ratings, we assess both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
