Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it received a somewhat respectable score in the area of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that category, which is a decent score. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. 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

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The third area we assessed was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this category. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this also impacted quality of care. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The final category we rated was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. In determining our long-term care ratings, we analyze the personal care received by the facility's patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.19101 percent of its patients, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
