Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we didn't give this place a good overall grade, we did give it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a B. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. 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. In spite of this deficiency, this was still a relatively favorable inspection report.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second most favorable area was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is often a fair assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. We looked at the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is not an impressive total. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored was long-term care. This nursing home received a very poor grade of F in that area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
