Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Neither this nursing home's overall grade nor its category grades gave us much to write home about. This place's best category is nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. In computing our nursing grades, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

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 facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This facility had 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of long-term care. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 52.83019 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our fourth area, this facility didn't fare very well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With its weak rating in this area, we weren't shocked to discover this place offers significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.1 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
