Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. 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. Based on this, we still had positive view of this facility's inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing score is largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third category we graded was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a solid grade of C. Short-term care grades are generally used to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we rated was long-term care, which proved to be a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a D for long-term care. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 62.711864 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
