Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall grade, it did receive a respectable nursing grade of B-. Nursing ratings are primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care rating ended up being one of its respectable scores. The nursing home was awarded a B- in this area. In the category of short-term care, we try to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility received mediocre government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this category. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you it avoided the more ominous categories of deficiencies. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we rated was long-term care, turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 93.333336 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
