Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we wanted to note its decent health inspections in recent years. We awarded it a somewhat respectable grade of B- in that area. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient 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

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an B-. In calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this area. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 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

The next area we scored was long-term care. This facility was awarded a grade of B- in the category. Long-term care grades are commonly used to assess a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.05213 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
