Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade is not a highlight, it received a somewhat respectable grade in the category of inspections. We awarded it a B- for this category, which is not bad. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This place received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures. While this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a patient even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable category was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The final area we rated is long-term care. For this category, we gave this facility a C. Long-term care scores are essential for residents in need of non-healthcare services such as personal care. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinates 99.22481 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
