This isn't the worse place we looked at, however, we'd still be very reluctant to recommend it.

Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B- for inspections. This score is more respectable than this place's overall grade. Inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This nursing home was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing grades are largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is a very low figure. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a middle of the road score in the category of short-term care, with a grade of B-. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The final item we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Turning to our final area, this nursing home was awarded a respectable long-term care grade of B-. Long-term care scores are based on the facility's amount of nursing services. This includes a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to only 78.91156 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
