Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared with most other nursing homes. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Remarkably, we gave this facility a B- for its short-term care score, which really isn't too bad of a score. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection grade. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility had several category G through L deficiencies, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by CMS had potential to pose actual harm to residents. Another area of concern is that 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our fourth area, this facility did not perform very well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. Facilities that do not score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 86.602875 percent of its patients, which is not a very encouraging sign. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
