Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in nursing. We looked at the qualifications of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our rating in this category. Based on the data, it looks like this place provides an impressive 4.3 hours per patient per day. This is more nursing care than most places offer. In determining our grades, we apply more weight to hours performed by more highly trained nurses such as registered or licensed nurses. Finally, we also weighed some quality-based measures. This place performed well in a few of the quality-based metrics we assessed. For example, in terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this place performed better than the national average. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided with better nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second highest area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In our short-term care category, we strive to create a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. When we assessed this facility's nursing hours, we found it offered more care from registered nurses than most nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 35.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third area we assessed was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a decent grade of B-. Our long-term care grade is generally used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.58657 percent of its patients, which is a very solid datapoint. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. With 1.74 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility is not too far off the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our last area of inspections, this facility received an F here. Since this information is compiled by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this area. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We would scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
