Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this place's overall grade is not a highlight, it actually received a somewhat respectable grade in the category of inspections. We awarded it a B- for that area, which is a decent score. Inspection ratings are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent 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

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B-. We looked at the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in computing our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next area we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home received a grade of B- in this area. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

The next category we rated was long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in that category. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.6755 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
