Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While we did not have many positive things to say about this place's overall grade, it did receive a respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent score in this category with a B-. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Lastly, 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

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B-. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's third highest area turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it received a grade of B-. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next category we looked at is long-term care, which was this facility's worst category. We awarded this facility a D in that area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 65.836296 percent of its residents. This is significantly lower than average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
