Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection ratings are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility also was given an impressive grade in our long-term care category. We awarded this facility a better than average grade of B in that category. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 97.1246 percent of its patients. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations for the nursing home population. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facilities third best area is short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. Our short-term care scores are considered to be more critical for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. This means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next category we analyzed was nursing, which is this nursing home's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a D in that category. Sadly, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade to some degree. There are a variety of data points within this area. Most of the factors reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
