Facility Inspections

Grade: A

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in that category, with an A. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable area is its long-term care score, where it was given a B-. In calculating these long-term care grades, we assess the facility's personal care services. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 99.35065 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of short-term care, where it received a C. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more important for people in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive category was nursing, which is the last area we looked at. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. There are quite a few criteria within this grade. Many of the criteria are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
