Facility Inspections

Grade: A+

This facility earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless government inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this category most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. It doesn't look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also excelled in the area of long-term care, with top-shelf grade of A- in this category. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Clearly we were content with what we found for this area.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. We looked at the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the last area, this nursing home didn't perform very well. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is its weakest category. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, we discovered that this facility offered less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
