Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's nursing grade outpaced its overall grade. We awarded it a B+ for its nursing grade. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This place provided 5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an impressive figure which typically correlates with quality care. Lastly, this nursing home appears to be above average in several of the major quality measures we assessed in this category. For example, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. These datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care a nursing home provides.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Another one of this nursing home's better category grades was in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually fared better than most facilities in this category. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This is a great way to avoid negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Finally, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. Although it had 2.09 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was close to the national average since it had more complicated patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next highest area is its short-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of C. In our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. In fact, we found it was above average in this metric with 51.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last category of inspections, this facility received an F here. This grade was very detrimental to this facility's overall grade. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection rating. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by CMS had potential to create actual harm to residents. Finally, this facility also received 18 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
