Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Although we were not complementary of this facility's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B. Our inspection grades are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. 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. The lack of deficiencies is this place's greatest accomplishment.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second best category was long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 85.194176 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing score is primarily tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is far below average. Finally, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final category we assessed is short-term care. We awarded it a C in that category. This is not a bad grade in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
