Facility Inspections

Grade: A

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also fared well in the area of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- in that area, which happens to be one of our highest grades. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure patients are kept in good health. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 98.4375 percent of its patients. Vaccines are critical to keeping patients healthy. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this nursing home had 2.76 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. While this admittedly wasn't as favorable as some of its other scores in this category, this number can be skewed for some facilities based on the preexisting medical conditions of residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another concern was the F this nursing home was given in the category of short-term care. In crafting our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this place offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 43 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home's least impressive area was nursing, which is the final category we looked at. We gave it an abysmal F in this category. In spite of some acceptable grades in other areas, this score is still disappointing so we felt obligated to make a note of it. In calculating our nursing grades, we assess both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 2.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. In addition to receiving below average marks for nursing hours, this facility was a bit less impressive in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and found this place was at approximately 1.5 times the national average in this metric.
