While we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B- for our inspections rating. This score is more respectable than the facility's overall grade. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Historical

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Our nursing score is largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This place boasts an impressive 5.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, of which more than an hour of those were provided by registered nurses. Registered nurses are highly trained nurses. Lastly, we also looked at a few quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility was above average in two of the major datapoints we assessed, with good scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. These statistics are sometimes reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care offered.

Historical

This facility received its next best category score in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a respectable grade. In our short-term care category, we strive to craft a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. This facility is above the national average in terms of its volume of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that it performed well in this metric with 76.5 percent of its residents returning home.

Historical

The last area we rated is long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is a decent grade in this area. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable total. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
