Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. Inspection grades are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The second best area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.20102 percent of its residents. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development is the F this facility received in the category of short-term care. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed is nursing. This facility was given a poor grade of F in that category. Nursing scores are largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
