Nurse Quality

Grade: B

While we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we did give it a strong grade in the area of nursing, where it received a B. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 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 facility performed very well in the area of 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 facility also was given a positive score in our short-term care category. We awarded this facility an above average grade of B in that category. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that 6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home received its third most favorable category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable score. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.64029 percent of its patients. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we looked at is inspections. Unfortunately, this facility didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. Consequently, we had to give it an F. When a nursing home has this bad of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 34 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
