Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

To pair with a strong overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for inspections. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have very few severe deficiencies. We were not able to track down deficiency counts for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given an impressive short-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B+ in this area. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. It doesn't look like this nursing home provided registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home was awarded a strong long-term care score as well. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area with a score of B+. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is significantly higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Turning to the final area, this nursing home was awarded a high-end nursing score. Although this wasn't quite as dominant as some of its other scores, this is nevertheless one of the more impressive scores a facility can receive. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored a few quality measures into our nursing grades. This nursing home was relatively weak in two of the major areas we focus on, with below average scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These areas are generally reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.
