Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B- for inspections. This grade is more respectable than this facility's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. 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: B-minus

One of this facility's more respectable category grades was in the category of short-term care. This turned out to be its second best category. In that category, we gave this facility a B-. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is considered to be a reliable measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. In calculating our nursing grades, we assess both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The last area we scored is long-term care, proved to be this facility's worst area. We gave this facility a D in that category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 20.068026 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit less than average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
