Facility Inspections

Grade: A

While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in this industry.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second best area was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

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-. There are several factors included in this area. Many of these subcategories are tied to staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last area we analyzed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-. In computing our long-term care ratings, we scrutinize the assistance with daily living received by the nursing home's residents. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 95.77465 percent of its residents, which is a very solid statistic. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
