Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B- for inspections. This score is more respectable than this place's overall score. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. 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

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in determining our rating in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable area turned out to be its short-term care score, where it received a grade of B-. Our short-term care ratings are likely most critical for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The question is whether this also affected quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to our fourth category, this nursing home was awarded a respectable long-term care grade of B-. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for those in need of more traditional services related to personal care. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 96.82539 percent of its residents. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
