Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Part of the reason this nursing home performed well overall is that it fared well in the category of inspections, with a grade of B+ in that category. It outperformed most facilities in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the 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 minor dings aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another quality feature for this facility is that it was awarded a favorable short-term care grade. In fact, this proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a B+. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This category is often a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

In addition, this facility also received favorable nursing grades this year. In fact, we awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B+. In calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the levels of training of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we looked at is long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. This really was one of the few weak points on a very solid profile. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
