Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not have many favorable things to say about this place's overall grade, it did receive a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. It received a decent score in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. In determining a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home received its next best category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this facility a B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. In calculating our long-term care ratings, we analyze the personal care offered to a nursing home's patients. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 99.23858 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The next area we graded was short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is a fair grade in this category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is generally a solid measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last item we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.
