Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe 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

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our nursing score is mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. According to its CMS data, this place provided an average of 5.6 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which was above the national average. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as minimizing major falls. This place performed admirably in this datapoint.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's third highest category was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. Short-term care grades are important for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this facility was below average in several staffing areas we focus on. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 39.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we assessed was long-term care, which was a weak spot for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in long-term care. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. This nursing home's vaccination statistics were not as impressive as its nursing hours data. It provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 76.54321 percent of its patients. We'd love to see some improvement herein this statistic next year. Unfortunately, its hospitalization rate was also a cause for concern. Here we found that this facility had 2.42 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.
