The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better grades in that category, with an A-. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a favorable score in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B in this area, which is one of our higher grades. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. This place seems to have performed reasonably well in this category as far as we could tell, but we do want to point out that we seem to be missing some information from this nursing home's long-term care reporting.
The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of B-. In calculating our nursing scores, we factor in both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This place provided just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving patients more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was short-term care. This facility was given a grade of B- in the category. Our short-term care grade is generally used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
