Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it did receive a very good score in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better grades. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing grades are primarily associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's third best category is short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. Short-term care ratings are vital for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive category is long-term care, which is the final area we analyzed. For this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 75.706215 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
