Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid health inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this area, which was much better than its overall score. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid facilities that have too many deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

One of this nursing home's better category grades came in the area of short-term care. This proved to be its second most respectable category. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. In determining our short-term care scores, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is frequently a fair assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care rating. This is not an impressive grade. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. After considering the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated only 37.4269 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The final area we assessed is nursing, was this nursing home's least impressive category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Unfortunately, this facility also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing pressure ulcers. This facility was at more than twice the national average in this statistic.
