Facility Inspections

Grade: B

While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B in this area, which is much better than its overall score. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was given its second most favorable category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this area, which is a respectable grade. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. This nursing home employs both physical therapists and registered nurses. Not all facilities employ these skilled professionals. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This place fared well in this area with 56 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, at most facilities, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. On top of ranking poorly in terms of nursing hours offered, this place also fell short in certain statistics that are tied to quality of care. This nursing home's nursing grade was hurt by poor performance in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers. In fact, we found that 19.1 percent of this place's residents were suffering from pressure ulcers. This is at least double the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we rated was long-term care, in which this facility received a poor score in this category also. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 93.28859 percent of its patients. This is a bit lower than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 1.39 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
