Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although this facility's overall grade is not a highlight, it actually received a slightly more favorable score in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that category, which is a decent score. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's more respectable category scores was in the category of long-term care. This wound up being its second best category. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. Our long-term care scores are based on a nursing home's amount of nursing care. This includes a broad spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this facility provided the vaccine to only 82.638885 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third best category is its short-term care grade, where it received a grade of C. In determining these short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final category we assessed was nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a D in this category. The nursing grade includes a handful of components, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
