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 scores are based on datapoints located in 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 patient safety. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. On top of having severe deficiencies, 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

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this facility an B-. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses were with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This place averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also stunned to find that this facility received a solid short-term care rating this year. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. In determining these short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated only 68.37945 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
