Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a poor overall grade, we actually awarded it a somewhat respectable score in the area of inspections, where we gave it a grade of B-. This was quite a bit better than its other category grades. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Another red flag is that CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an B-. The nursing grade weighs a handful of factors, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next most favorable category was its short-term care grade, where it received a B-. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we graded is long-term care, which proved to be a weak spot for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D in our long-term care category. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility gave the vaccine to just 88.34951 percent of its patients, which is well below average. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
