Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection ratings are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable category is long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this area. In calculating our long-term care ratings, we look at the personal care offered to the nursing home's patients. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. While it had 1.74 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was better than most nursing homes since it had more complicated patients.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing grade is based on quite a few factors, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides only 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning residents at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we analyzed was short-term care, which ended up being a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are presumably more critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With its poor score in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
