Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we also wanted to point out that this nursing home received strong long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our higher grades in this category, with a B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second best grade. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care tend to provide residents with closer supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's third most favorable category ended up being short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B-. With our short-term care assessment, we try to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this area. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses worked with residents, in computing our score in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
