Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a bad overall rating, we gave it a fairly respectable score in the category of inspections, where it received a B-. This was certainly better than its other categories. Inspection ratings are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. 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 also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. In determining a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averages 3.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also factored in some quality-based assessments. This facility scored well in a few of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In terms of the number of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, this facility beat the national average.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third most favorable area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We found that it performed well in this area with 56.9 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we scored was long-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is a perfectly acceptable grade in this category. In the category of long-term care, we focus on the quantity of services provided by a facility, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 96.42857 percent of its patients. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had just 1.4 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days.
