Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we actually gave it a very strong grade in the area of nursing, where it received a B. The nursing score includes quite a few subcategories, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a decent score in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 95.76923 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is not a very good score. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this facility provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning the final category of inspections, this facility had an abysmal showing. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. With places that received this poor of an inspection score, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home had 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 3 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
