Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we wanted to point out its decent government inspection reports in recent years. We gave it a somewhat respectable score of B- in that category. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 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

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing grade is largely based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are probably more important for individuals needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last metric we assessed in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our final area is long-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a B- in that area. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for individuals in need of more traditional services associated with activities of daily living. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
