Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Although we were down on this facility overall, we gave it a grade of B+ in nursing. This grade is more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. The nursing rating features numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility 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 received an impressive grade in our short-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B in that area. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our long-term care score. This is not a score to write home about. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.14285 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last area of inspections, this nursing home received an F in this area. Since this information is collected by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight poor results in this area. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We would scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we need to point out that this place was assessed large government fines recently of over $50,000. This often suggests that CMS inspectors became frustrated after several years of bad health inspections.
