Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not have many favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall grade, it did receive a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that area with a score of B-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home an B-. The nursing score consists of several components, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this category. Long-term care grades are generally used to score a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinates 97.683395 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we assessed was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a C. With our short-term care rating, we attempt to create a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
