Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of B- for inspections. This score is more respectable than this facility's overall score. Inspection scores are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

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 grade is mostly based on the facility's nurse staffing. This place provides only 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

The third category we looked at is short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of B-. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was a much stronger area for this facility. We found that it outperformed most nursing homes in this metric with 69.9 percent of its residents returning home. This really bolstered its grade in this category.

Historical

The next area we rated was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this area. This is a fair grade in this category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 21.212118 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is quite a bit lower than the national average. The last statistic we looked at is the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this nursing home had 1.94 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is also slightly below the national average.
