Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection grades are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our long-term care grade, which is not a bad grade. Our long-term care scores are vital for patients in need of personal care. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 46.038544 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit less than what we expected. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We were surprised to find that this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. In fact, we awarded it an D for that category, which is one of our best grades. Nursing grades are mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home did not fare very well here either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. In our short-term care rating, we try to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 2.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
