Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home also didn't grade out poorly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a C for that area, which is another one of its better grades. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. When calculating our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is well below average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we assessed was long-term care, which was a weak link for this facility. We gave this facility a D for the area of long-term care. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 81.7757 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
