Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we gave this facility a poor overall score, we awarded it a grade of B for our inspections rating. This was the result of the nursing home receiving a decent inspection report this year. Inspection scores are tied to several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. While this facility had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it earned an C. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Nursing scores are mostly tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We discovered that this facility vaccinated only 54.579437 percent of its residents, which is not a very encouraging sign. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the fourth area, this facility didn't fare very well in this area either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we were not surprised to find that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
