Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although this facility's overall score wasn't a highlight, it actually received a decent grade in nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category. When determining our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's more respectable category grades came in the area of short-term care. This proved to be its second most respectable category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. In our short-term care category, we endeavor to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home received mediocre inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of C in this category. Our inspection grades are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates it avoided the more serious categories of deficiencies. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of D. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. After considering the amount of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 97.57366 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
