Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we wanted to note its decent government inspections in recent years. We gave it a somewhat respectable score of B- in this area. 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. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose 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-. Our nursing grade is largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next most favorable category we awarded this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we graded was long-term care. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. In computing these long-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
