Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not have many positive things to say about this place's overall score, it did receive a respectable government inspection report this year. It received a decent grade in that area with a score of B-. Our inspection scores are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing score is largely based on the facility's nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next highest area came in the area of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to gauge a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we scored is long-term care, which was a low point for this facility. We gave this nursing home a grade of D for our long-term care category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 91.47982 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.06 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
