Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Although we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong grade in the area of nursing, where it earned a B+. Nursing grades are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this category. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home received mediocre government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a grade of C in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This facility had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This indicates the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the final category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D for long-term care. This is the facility's worst category rating. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 76.70505 percent of its residents. This is several points less than average. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
