Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although this facility's overall score was not a highlight, it actually received a slightly more favorable score in the area of inspections. We awarded it a grade of B- for that area, which is not bad. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are largely based on the facility's nurse staffing. This place averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving patients even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was its short-term care grade, where it was given a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are generally employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Moving on to our next area, this facility was awarded a C in long-term care, which we consider to be an acceptable rating. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
