Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

On top of performing well overall, this facility also received a nearly flawless inspection report. Therefore, it received one of our best scores in that area with a grade of A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. 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 an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: A

We also gave this facility a grade of A for our long-term care score. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure residents are kept in good health. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 79.333336 percent of its residents, which is slightly below what we anticipated. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

The next area we graded is short-term care. This nursing home was given an above average short-term care score, with a B in this area. In determining our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is frequently a fair assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. It doesn't look like this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next area we rated is nursing. We awarded this nursing home an acceptable score in that category, with a C. Even though this wasn't as dominant as some of this nursing home's other grades, it is nevertheless a middle of the pack score. Our nursing score consists of a handful of subcategories, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
