Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we were down on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B for our nursing rating. This score is quite a bit more impressive than the facility's overall score. We scrutinized the levels of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses were with residents, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided 2.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these datapoints as reliable measures of the caliber of nursing care being provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

Surprisingly, this nursing home actually earned a good grade in the area of inspections as well. We gave it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Not many facilities that were this poor overall earned multiple category grades of this caliber. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that had a long list of deficiencies. This nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care score. This is not an impressive grade. In computing our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is more often than not a solid assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 38.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was long-term care, in which this nursing home received a bottom of the barrel score in this area as well. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 85.96154 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 1.36 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
