Facility Inspections

Grade: A-plus

One of the reasons this turned out to be a quality facility is that it earned a very impressive inspection score. Inspections is its best category grade. In this area, we awarded it an A+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key 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 can be relatively minor. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

This facility received an impressive long-term care grade as well. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area with a grade of B. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses aids. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 99.609375 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is much higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, this facility also was given favorable short-term care scores this year. In fact, we awarded it one of our better grades in that area, with a grade of B. Short-term care grades are typically employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to the next category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in the area of nursing. This is the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Sadly, this grade hurt the facility's overall grade a bit. Our nursing rating is based on several components, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
