Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

It should be noted that this nursing home's inspection score outpaced its overall grade. We gave it a grade of B+ for its inspections grade, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's better category grades was in the area of short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another reason we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received an A+ nursing rating. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can many times be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our next category, we gave this facility a D for our long-term care category. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the nursing home's overall profile a bit. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's 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 patients. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
