Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall grade, it did receive a respectable nursing score of B-. The nursing grade features numerous subcategories. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, nursing scores also consider quality-based metrics, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of short-term care. This turned out to be its second most favorable category. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Short-term care scores are vital for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home received mediocre government inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of C in this category. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident health or safety. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Switching gears to the last category, this nursing home was given a C in long-term care, which is generally a decent grade. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
