Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is better than this facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving residents more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road score in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Short-term care grades are typically employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the final area we assessed. For this area, we awarded this nursing home a D. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 95.55556 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
