Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

We would like to point out that this facility's nursing grade exceeded its overall rating. This nursing home earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place Tennessee in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a patient at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B

This nursing home's inspection rating exceeded its overall score as well. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. This is a notably better score than its overall score. Inspection grades are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor dings aren't necessarily something to panic about.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

We also awarded this nursing home a favorable score in short-term care. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most critical for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Switching gears to our next category, we awarded this facility a D in the area of long-term care. This is the nursing home's worst category grade. Sadly, this category pulled down the nursing home's overall grade to a certain degree. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 90.99099 percent of its residents, which is a bit below what we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
