Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Inspection grades are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also stunned to find that this nursing home received a reasonably solid long-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a C in this category. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for folks needing more traditional assistance associated with personal care. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccines. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 76.27119 percent of its patients. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't rate terribly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of C for that area, which turned out to be among its more respectable scores. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The final statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the fourth category, we awarded this facility a grade of D for our nursing category. This is the facility's least impressive category rating. The nursing grade assesses quite a few factors, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
