Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far better than its overall score. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a good inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home also was awarded a strong score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B+ in that area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. In calculating our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the last area, this facility did not perform well. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is this facility's weakest grade. With our short-term care grade, we attempt to create a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It looks like this nursing home was below average in multiple staffing metrics we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
