Long-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our long-term care rating. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 90.88608 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being its second best grade. One of the most significant factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility had 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades.
