Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Places with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home also performed favorably in the area of long-term care, with a superb grade of A- in this area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 92.50814 percent of its patients. Finally, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 1.53 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in that area. Short-term care grades are vital for prospective residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last item we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We found that it performed better in this area, with 56.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we assessed is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a very poor grade. This is certainly a significant disappointment. Nursing grades are tied to quantity of nursing care available. With just 2.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. To pair with its below average totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this place had really poor marks in many of the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of residents experiencing falls which led to major injury. This place was at more than 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.
