Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this place a weak overall rating, we actually awarded it a somewhat respectable grade in the category of inspections, where we gave it a B-. This was quite a bit better than its other categories. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. We weren't able to track down deficiency data for this facility. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. There are a number of datapoints within this category. Many of the criteria reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third best area we awarded this facility in any area came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Our short-term care grade is typically used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Turning to our next category, this facility was awarded a respectable long-term care grade of C. Long-term care ratings are vital for patients looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 94.2623 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
