Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall score wasn't a highlight, it actually received a decent score in nursing. We awarded it a B- for that category. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This facility averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next most favorable category turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home received mediocre inspections in recent years. We gave them a C in this category. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means that this facility dodged the more serious classes of deficiencies. Lastly, 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we assessed is long-term care, turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 89.96416 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be several points lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
