Facility Inspections

Grade: A

We want to point out that this nursing home really outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in this category with an A. Inspection grades are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. 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: B-plus

Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B+. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 94.497604 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Clearly, this facility 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 one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's next most favorable area ended up being its short-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was nursing, which proved to be this facility's weakest category. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is obviously concerning. Our nursing rating includes many data points, but the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
