Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this nursing home a favorable score in long-term care. This facility received a B in this area, which happens to be one of our better grades. Long-term care grades in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a facility does not leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. In computing a facility's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our last area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of short-term care. This was the facility's worst category grade. Sadly, this score hurt the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to create a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. It looks like this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
