Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Arguably the most important factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. 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. Based on this, we had a generally favorable view of this facility's recent inspections.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This nursing home also was given a favorable long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded them a B in that category, which is one of our more favorable scores. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.958336 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a great way to avoid unnecessary deaths for the senior population. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. Our nursing grade focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we assessed was short-term care, which is a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for short-term care. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.
