Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's nursing score outpaced its overall rating. We awarded it a B+ for its nursing score, which is one of our better scores. In calculating our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can frequently be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this nursing home's better category grades was in the area of short-term care. This proved to be its second best category. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. Our short-term care grades are important for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third best category was long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a C. Our long-term care scores are more critical for people in need of more conventional assistance related to activities of daily living. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.49057 percent of its residents, which is an above average percentage. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

In the final category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. Inspection grades are based on a facility's recent government inspections. We gave this facility a D in this category, which is a very weak grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 4 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
