Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection ratings are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this area typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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 a generally positive view of this nursing home's inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second most favorable area turned out to be its long-term care score, where it was awarded a C. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.5 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of C in this category. There are numerous datapoints within this grade. Many of the criteria relate to staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we assessed was short-term care, which turned out to be a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of D in our short-term care category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With a grade in this range for this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility was below average in multiple staffing figures we looked at. The nursing home provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
