Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this nursing home a weak overall rating, we gave it a fairly respectable grade in the category of inspections, where we gave it a grade of B-. This was better than its other categories. Inspection ratings are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. In addition to having severe deficiencies, 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

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B-. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses worked with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared with most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility received its next highest category score in the area of short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable score. Our short-term care scores are likely most critical for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Moving on to the last category, this facility was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of B-. Long-term care scores are critical for residents looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 91.19171 percent of its residents. This is slightly below what we expected but still a decent percentage. Nevertheless, this place keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
