Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. 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 were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Nursing scores are largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's third highest category was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. In determining our short-term care grades, we size up the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is more often than not a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Given its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the data we assessed. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we looked at was long-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in that category. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 86.938774 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
