This was better than its other category grades. Inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. In addition to having severe deficiencies, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this subcategory. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning residents even once per day.
