Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we gave this facility a very weak overall grade, it did receive a somewhat better grade in long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. This was certainly better than its other category scores. In calculating our long-term care scores, we scrutinize the personal care offered to the nursing home's patients. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 93.57798 percent of its patients, which is slightly lower than we anticipated. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this facility an C. In calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home received mediocre government inspections in recent years. We gave them a C in this area. Our inspection ratings are tied to datapoints found on 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 patient safety. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you this facility avoided the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our final area is short-term care, in which we awarded this facility a C in this category. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is generally a solid measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
