Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this place's overall score is not a highlight, it received a slightly more favorable grade in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B- for this category, which is not bad. Inspection scores are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. We are also concerned by the fact that 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

This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. Although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this metric. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving patients at least once a day.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable area was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care grades, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is frequently a meaningful assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Switching gears to the final category, this facility was awarded an acceptable long-term care score of B-. With our long-term care score, we analyze the quantity of care provided by a facility, along with a handful of quality measures. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 64.68532 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
