Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Neither this nursing home's overall grade nor its category scores gave us much to write home about. This place's best category is nursing, but even there it received just a D. This is still a well below average grade. We analyzed the levels of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in calculating our grade in this area. This nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is not great. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this facility earned really poor inspection reports in recent years, causing us to give them an F for inspections. An F in this category is often a signal that we found some major red flags on its inspection reports. When a facility has this poor of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This generally signifies that a facility'sbad track record has been an issue for more than one year.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home's received a bottom of the barrel short-term care score where it was given an F. With our short-term care assessment, we try to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Based on its score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we looked at. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored is long-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in that area. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 77.882355 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
