Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though this nursing home's overall grade wasn't a highlight, it actually received a somewhat respectable grade in nursing. We gave it a B- for that category. We weighed the levels of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in computing our score in this area. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is well below average. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's short-term care score is one of its higher scores. The facility received a B- in this area. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable area is long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.89572 percent of its residents. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Turning the last category of inspections, we gave this nursing home a score of C for this category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates this facility avoided the more ominous classes of deficiencies. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
