Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this place is a strong facility is that it received a very impressive inspection grade. In fact, inspections is its best category grade. In this category, we gave this facility an A+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a score of A- for our long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. In addition to providing well above average levels of nurse staffing, this nursing home gave the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This figure is also much better than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.65 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility was given its next highest category grade in the category of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a C in this category, which is a decent score. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We were extremely impressed to find that this facility offers its residents substantially more physical therapist hours than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 36.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest category is nursing, which is the final area we analyzed. In this category, we awarded this facility a grade of D. There are many factors included in this category. Many of these data points are tied to levels of nurse staffing. Quantity of nursing care does not appear to be the source of this facility's poor nursing grade. This nursing home provides 4.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is better than we expected. In computing our grades, we apply additional weight to hours performed by highly trained nurses such as registered nurses. Finally, we turn to some quality-focused statistics in rounding out our nursing scores. Specifically, we look at the percent of patients who sustained pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care, since better care tends to reduce these problems.
