Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall score was terrible, it didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. We gave it a B- for that category. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides a somewhat concerning 3.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Nevertheless, more than one quarter of those hours were provided by registered nurses, which is one of the most highly trained levels of nurses. We attach more weight to these skilled nursing hours in computing our nursing grades. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility also didn't grade out too badly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a B- for that area, which is among its more respectable grades. In computing our short-term care grades, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This area is typically a reliable measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. This facility is above average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse staffing provided to its residents. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that it outperformed the majority of nursing homes in the country with 50.2 percent of its patients returning home. This is a better rate than most nursing homes.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

As it turns out, this facility's inspection reports also weren't the source of this nursing home's bottom of the barrel overall score. The facility received a C in this area. Our inspection grades are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This place had 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you that this facility avoided the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our next area, this nursing home really did not perform well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 80.48048 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.35 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
