Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not have many positive things to say about this facility's overall score, it did receive a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent score in this category with a B-. Our inspection ratings are based on items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient health or safety. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's second highest area ended up being short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a B-. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is more often than not a reliable measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was given its third highest category score in the category of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a reasonably acceptable grade. Our long-term care ratings are more important for residents in need of more conventional assistance associated with activities of daily living. After considering the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 99.54128 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's weakest area is nursing, which is the last category we analyzed. For this area, we awarded this facility a grade of D. Our nursing rating analyzes quite a few subcategories, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
