Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this place really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Few nursing homes performed better in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this area typically have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. 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 a generally positive view of this facility's inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care scores are crucial for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. Nursing ratings are largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we looked at is long-term care, which ended up being a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a D for long-term care. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 97.89156 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
