We also gave this nursing home a strong score in short-term care. This nursing home received a grade of B+ in this area, which happens to be one of our higher scores. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing.

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home was given its third most favorable category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of B- in this category, which is a reasonably acceptable score. In our long-term care category, we assess the quantity of care offered by a nursing home, as well as some qualitative datapoints. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. It does not look like this nursing home submitted vaccination data. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Turning the last category of inspections, this ended up being this facility's worst grade. Inspection grades are based on a nursing home's recent government inspection reports. We gave this nursing home a D in this category, which is not a very good grade. Since this data is collected by government inspectors, we take it seriously. Inspection grades weigh many items found on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. If you find too many deficiencies on the reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular facility had 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines recently amounting to more than $100,000. This often indicates that a poor track record has been an issue for more than one year.
