Facility Inspections

Grade: A-minus

This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you 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 should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Building on this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing score. We awarded them an impressive grade of B- in this category. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is a very low figure. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, 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 often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third best area we gave this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In crafting our long-term care grades, we quantify the facility's personal care services. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.409325 percent of its patients. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the last area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for our short-term care category. This is the facility's weakest category score. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. With a score this poor in this area, we were not stunned to discover this place was well below average in the two key staffing figures we focus on. It provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
