Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This facility's best category grade came in nursing. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a B+. It actually outperformed most facilities in this area. Our nursing score weighs several subcategories. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Additionally, we awarded this facility a B+ in our short-term care category. This is one of our better grades. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care grade. This is not one of our better scores. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 99.64029 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the final category of inspections, this facility did not fare well. It received an F in this category. This dragged this nursing home's overall score down as we heavily weight this category. For facilities with bad inspection grades, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular nursing home had 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 34 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
