Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Although we were down on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of B+ in nursing. This grade is quite a bit more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our nursing rating assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This facility provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home 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-minus

This facility's next best category ended up being short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next most favorable category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for those needing more conventional services associated with activities of daily living. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 71.95122 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

The final category we looked at was inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being this facility's weakest link. We gave it a score of D in this category. Since this information is collected by government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our grading. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home had a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by CMS had potential to pose actual harm to patients. Finally, this facility also received 5 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
