Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not have many positive things to say about this place's overall score, it earned a somewhat respectable government inspection report this year. It received a decent grade in that area with a score of B-. Inspection grades are tied to several 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 patient safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. The nursing grade considers numerous datapoints. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next highest category was its short-term care grade, where it was given a grade of B-. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is considered to be a meaningful measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Our final area is long-term care, where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C in this area. In determining our long-term care scores, we scrutinize the personal care offered to a nursing home's residents. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is an above average total. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
