Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we were down on this facility overall, we gave it a B for our nursing rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our nursing grade considers many datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at 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.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

We actually gave this facility a very solid grade in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. We believe that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was hit with 10 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care rating. This is well below average in this category. Our short-term care grades are crucial for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our fourth area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in long-term care. This is the facility's worst category score. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
