Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This facility received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Inspection grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's better category scores came in the category of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B+. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is more often than not a meaningful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. We gave this nursing home a score of D. The nursing rating includes a handful of datapoints, however, the most important one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we analyzed was long-term care, which turned out to be a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 94.210526 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
