Nurse Quality

Grade: A

We gave this nursing home one of our better scores in nursing, with a grade of A. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our nursing score considers a host of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at 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: B

This nursing home also was awarded a strong short-term care grade. Indeed, we gave them a grade of B in that category, which is one of our more favorable scores. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third best category we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 88.837204 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we looked at is inspections. This facility didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F in this category. Since this data is compiled by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this area. This really pulled down this facility's overall grade. When a facility has this bad of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by CMS had potential to cause actual harm to residents. Lastly, we need to point out that this facility was assessed large government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This generally means that a nursing home's bad track record has been an issue for multiple years.
