Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this nursing home a poor overall score, we actually gave it a somewhat respectable grade in the area of inspections, where we gave it a B-. This was quite a bit better than its other categories. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Our nursing rating is largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures. 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

This facilities next most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this category. Our short-term care grades are important for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we graded is long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in that area. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's assistance with daily living instead of the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 95.20548 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
