Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall grade, it did receive a respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent score in that area with a score of B-. Our inspection grades are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, 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 awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Nursing grades are primarily tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best area was short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this area. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The last category we analyzed was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this area. In computing these long-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 66.66667 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly below what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
