Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall score, it did receive a respectable nursing rating of B-. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This particular facility provided just 3.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable 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 offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second best area we gave this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home performed better in this statistic. This place performed better than most facilities in this area with 50.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category is its long-term care score, where it was awarded a B-. With our long-term care score, we focus more on the amount of services offered by a nursing home, as well as a few quality metrics. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 92.703865 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we were hoping for but still a decent figure. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.61 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Moving on the final category of government inspections, we gave this nursing home a D for our inspection category. This proved to be this facility's weakest category. We take a poor score in this category very seriously. Inspection ratings factor in many items on the nursing home's inspection reports. When you see severe deficiencies on the reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a threat 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.
