Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Another area of concern is that CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't rate terribly in the category of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a C in that area, which is among its more respectable grades. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. Once we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 58.252422 percent of its patients for pneumonia. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's third best score is short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last category we looked at is nursing. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in this area. The nursing grade includes many components, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
