Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

While we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable nursing score this year. We gave it a B+ in this category, which was much better than its overall rating. Our nursing score analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, 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.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

We awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our inspections rating. This score is more respectable than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This tells you this facility avoided the more serious categories of deficiencies. Finally, they also received 28 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a D for its long-term care grade, which is not one of our better scores. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 68 percent of its residents. This is significantly below average. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we looked at is short-term care, which proved to be a low point for this facility. We awarded this facility a D in our short-term care category. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more important for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
