Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

While we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a grade of B+ for our inspections category. This grade is far better than the facility's overall score. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's more respectable category grades was in the area of short-term care. This ended up being its second most respectable category. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. When computing our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed is long-term care. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is an abysmal score. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home provided the vaccine to just 87.32107 percent of its patients, which is well below average. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
