Facility Inspections

Grade: A

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades 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. Based on this, we had positive view of this facility's inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home received high grades in the area of nursing as well. It earned one of our highest scores in that category with an C. Nursing scores are primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this statistic. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving a patient more often.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a solid grade of C. Our long-term care grade is often used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 95.60185 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we assessed was short-term care. For this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
