Facility Inspections

Grade: B-plus

This nursing home's overall score was propped up by the fact that it has earned favorable inspections in recent years. We awarded them a strong score in this area, with a B+. This is a much better grade than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection grades are based on pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care score is one of its better scores. The facility received a grade of B- in this area. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing grade features numerous factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This particular nursing home provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, while this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's worst area is long-term care, which is the final area we assessed. For this category, we gave this facility a grade of just D. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 98.039215 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
