Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our short-term care rating. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final item we considered in this category is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is not an impressive total. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't perform poorly in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of C in that area, which turned out to be among its higher scores. Long-term care scores are based on a nursing home's amount of nursing services. This means a vast range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on our final area of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. Since this data is collected by government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this area. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. 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.
