Facility Inspections

Grade: A

To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home a grade of A for its inspection grade. This is far better than its overall rating. Our inspection grades are based on many items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's short-term care grade ended up being one of its respectable grades. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is considered to be a fair measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. Our nursing grade includes a handful of datapoints, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's worst area is long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. In this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility gave the vaccine to just 78.84615 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
