Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B- for inspections. This grade is more respectable than this facility's overall grade. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, 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 also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing score consists of many datapoints, but the main one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road score in this category. Our short-term care grade is often used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our next category is long-term care, where we awarded this facility a B- in this category. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
