Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Another area of concern is that 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

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Nursing grades are primarily tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This place averages just 3.1 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is well below average. Finally, our nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. While this place did not have as many nursing hours as many of the other nursing homes we assessed, it was still better than average in the area of preventing falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this nursing home earned a solid short-term care grade this year. We awarded it a B- in that category. In forming our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. This nursing home elevated its grade in this category by offering more care from registered nurses to its residents than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that it also performed well in this area with 66.2 percent of its patients returning home. Most facilities are below 50 percent in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is an abysmal score. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 83.65019 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at limiting hospitalizations. Although it had 2.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not bad since it had more complex patients. This was its best score in this category
