Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we wanted to note its decent inspections in recent years. We awarded it a somewhat respectable score of B- in this category. Our inspection ratings are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. 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

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. The nursing score includes several factors, however, the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was given its next best category grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is an acceptable grade. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home 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 metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to our last category, this facility received a grade of B- in long-term care, which is generally a respectable score. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 94.91525 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
