Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't perform terribly in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we gave it a C in that category, which turned out to be another one of its higher grades. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 94.86487 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive area was short-term care, which is the final area we looked at. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of D. Our short-term care ratings are probably most critical for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score this poor in this category, we were not shocked to learn that this facility was well below average in many staffing figures we looked at. The facility supplied substantially 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 facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
