Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall grade, it earned a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent score in this area with a score of B-. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Nursing scores are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this facility a middle of the road score in the category of short-term care, with a B-. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we analyzed is long-term care, which is a low point for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of just D in our long-term care category. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 66.34383 percent of its residents, which is not a very encouraging sign. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
