Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a bad overall grade, we gave it a somewhat respectable score in the area of inspections, where it received a B-. This was better than its other categories. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of C. When calculating a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third highest area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In calculating our short-term care scores, we size up the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is more often than not a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The last category we graded is long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in that area. In computing our long-term care grades, we scrutinize the assistance with daily living offered to a nursing home's residents. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility gave the vaccine to just 86.31579 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
