Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall score wasn't a highlight, it actually received a decent grade in nursing. We awarded it a B- for that category. There are many datapoints included in this category. Most of these subcategories relate to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place averages just 0.6 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second most favorable category we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Short-term care ratings are important for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 6.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third highest area is its long-term care score, where it was given a B-. In the area of long-term care, we assess the amount of services offered by a nursing home, rather than more medically-intensive services. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 91.52542 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a bit lower than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Looking to our last category of inspections, we gave this facility a grade of just just D, which is a relatively poor grade. Our inspection score is based on the nursing home's inspections. Since this information is compiled by independent government inspectors, we place a great deal of weight on it in our overall grades. Our inspection scores factor in many items found on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. When you find severe deficiencies on the reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility was hit with 8 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
