Grade: A

The main reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection grade. In fact, its inspection score was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave it an A. Our inspection grades are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area tend to have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive scores. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are kept in good health. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 99.73262 percent of its patients, which is much higher than most nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility received its third best category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this category, which is a decent score. In computing our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is often a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst area is nursing, which is the final category we assessed. In this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. There are numerous factors within this category. Many of the factors are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
