Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. Our inspection scores are tied to many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's second best category turned out to be short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Short-term care scores are vital for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating is based on a handful of datapoints, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the last area, this nursing home didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 85.96491 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points lower than the national average. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
