Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B- in nursing. This score is better than the facility's overall score. Our nursing score includes a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to award this facility a relatively favorable health inspection rating as well. We gave it a respectable grade of B- in this category, which easily topped its overall grade. Our inspection ratings are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility's third highest category ended up being its long-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. Our long-term care grade is used to judge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated only 51.31579 percent of its patients against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our final category is short-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a C in that area. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is more often than not a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.
