Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Nursing grades are primarily associated with a facility's nurse staffing. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home's third best category is long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.55832 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was short-term care. This facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this category. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Community Care Center Quality Metrics

Minimizes Pressure Ulcers

Grade: A-minus

In Community Care Center, 8.94% of Patients had Pressure Ulcers

This indicates the percentage of long-term care patients who developed new or worsened pressure ulcers. We've found that pressure ulcers are a reliable indicator of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

Minimizes Serious Falls

Grade: A-plus

In Community Care Center, 3.47% of Patients had Serious Falls

This tells you the percent of residents who sustained a major fall. Falls resulting in major injuries are often the result of poor nursing care. Better nursing care can minimize the percentage of residents in a nursing home who sustain major falls.

Minimizes Urinary Tract Infections

Grade: A-plus

In Community Care Center, 2.6% of Patients had UTIs

This tells you the percent of patients who sustained a urinary tract infection. Urinary tract infections are routinely the result of lower quality nursing care. More frequent bathing can reduce the number of UTI's sustained by residents in a nursing home. We want to point out that this statistic is sometimes skewed by the fact that facilities have different reporting standards for UTI's.

Appropriately Uses Anti-Psychotic Medication

Grade: F

In Community Care Center, 18.4% of Patients use Anti-Psychotic Medication

This indicates the percentage of residents given antipsychotic medications. Antipsychotic medications are given to residents for many conditions, such as dementia. Sadly, in some cases, increased usage of these drugs may mean that a facility is using these medications to subdue residents.

In Community Care Center, 19.11% of Patients use Anti-Anxiety Medication

This tells you the percentage of patients given antianxiety drugs. Antianxiety drugs are prescribed to patients experiencing anxiety or depression.
