Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was not a highlight, it received a slightly more favorable grade in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B- for this category, which is a decent score. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this nursing home's better category scores was in the area of short-term care. This wound up being its second most favorable category. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest area we gave this facility in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the quantity of care provided by a facility, as opposed to more healthcare-oriented services. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.64413 percent of its patients, which is a very solid total. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The last area we assessed is nursing. We gave this facility a grade of C in that category. Our nursing rating includes several factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
