Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B- for our nursing rating. This score is more respectable than its overall grade. The nursing rating analyzes a handful of subcategories, but the main consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care score turns out to be one of its higher grades. The nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this category. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was a much stronger area for this facility. It outperformed most nursing homes in this metric with 57.7 percent of its patients returning home. This really helped its score in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a middle of the road grade in the category of long-term care, with a B-. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 1.63 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

The last category we looked at is inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being this facility's weakest link. We gave it a grade of just D in this area. Since this data is collected by independent government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our overall grade. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. You should be most cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
