Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher grades in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

This facility also excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an B. Few places fared better in this area. Nursing grades are tied to nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any facility the state in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third most favorable category we gave this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. For patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid statistic. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.05 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we scored was short-term care. We gave this facility a D for short-term care, rendering this the facility's worst category. Short-term care scores are important for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this nursing home was subpar in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we considered. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.
