Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

We want to point out that this facility really outperformed its overall score in the category of inspections. In fact, it received an excellent government inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best scores in this category with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively minor. 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 still had a generally favorable view of this facility's inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility also was given a strong short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a B+ in that area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Our short-term care grades are arguably most important for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The final metric we considered in this area is the number 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 were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. We assessed the levels of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our score in this area. 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, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive area is long-term care, which is the last area we scored. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 94.98208 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
