Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall score is not a highlight, it actually received a slightly more favorable score in the category of inspections. We awarded it a grade of B- for this area, which is a decent score. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B-. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses are seeing residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third category we graded was short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. With our short-term care rating, we endeavor to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we rated is long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of B- in this category. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 96.275604 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
