Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the amount of time nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, although this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next highest area we awarded this facility in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 6.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third best category we gave this facility in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's personal care rather than the skilled therapy or medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. We were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 89.67391 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we looked at is inspections. This facility did not receive favorable government inspections in recent years. As a result, we gave it an F in this category. For nursing homes with poor inspection ratings, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
