Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B- for inspections. This score is more respectable than this facility's overall grade. Inspection scores weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. It does not look like we were able to find deficiency data for this nursing home. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. When calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the amount of time nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facilities next best category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this category. Short-term care grades are often used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services To provide quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of patients 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 patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of B-. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinates 98.723404 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
