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 95.4054 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 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's next highest category is short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared relatively badly. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more meaningful for folks requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its poor score in this area, we weren't surprised to find this nursing home provides significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

The next area we analyzed was nursing, which proved to be a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for nursing. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. With just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
