Although we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B- for our inspections rating. This grade is better than this facility's overall score. Our inspection scores are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Historical

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Nursing ratings are largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. While this facility ranked poorly in terms of the quantity of nursing care provided, it actually performed admirably in a few of our quality-based metrics. It was above average in two of the subcategories we look at, with favorable scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Historical

The next area we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility was given a grade of B- in this area. Short-term care grades are often employed to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. This place was respectable in this metric with 48.4 percent of its patients returning home.

Historical

Our next category is long-term care, where we gave this nursing home a grade of C in that area. In forming these long-term care scores, we assess the facility's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 97.849464 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at its number of hospitalizations. While it had 2.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted metric was not too bad.
