Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we wanted to note its decent health inspection reports in recent years. We awarded it a somewhat respectable grade of B- in this area. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Another area of concern is that CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we graded was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In forming our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last area we looked at was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in this category. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled nursing or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.0566 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
