Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B- for our inspections rating. This score is better than this facility's overall grade. Inspection scores are tied to several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, 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

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This place provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, while this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it did well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third highest area ended up being its short-term care score, where it received a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 6.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our fourth category, this facility was given a B- for long-term care, which is a respectable rating. Long-term care grades assess a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 94.0367 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable figure. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
