Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although this facility's overall grade is not a highlight, it actually received a somewhat respectable score in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that category, which is a decent score. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. 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 awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating assesses a handful of factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility received a B- in this area. Our short-term care grades are thought to be more meaningful for folks in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we scored was long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. In the area of long-term care, we look at the amount of services offered by a facility, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
