Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this facility a bad overall grade, we awarded it a fairly respectable score in the area of inspections, where it received a B-. This was quite a bit better than its other categories. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

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. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility received its third best category grade in the area of short-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is considered to be a fair assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Our next area is long-term care, in which we awarded this nursing home a B- in that area. Long-term care grades are generally used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated just 57.14286 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
