Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

It should also be noted that this facility's inspection rating outpaced its overall score. We awarded it a B+ for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best area is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. The nursing grade assesses quite a few components, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we looked at is long-term care. This nursing home was given a grade of C for this category. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for individuals in need of more traditional services associated with activities of daily living. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.76923 percent of its residents. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
