Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall score, it did receive a respectable nursing score of B-. In determining our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care grade ended up being one of its more favorable scores. The facility was given a B- in this area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in this category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's 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. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.96907 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This nursing home did not receive a favorable inspection rating. We gave it a just D in this category. Inspection scores relate to a facility's government inspection reports. One of the more critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
