Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Neither this facility's overall grade nor its category grades gave us much to write home about. Its best category was inspections, but even there we gave it a D. This is a very poor grade. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. Generally, you should be more cautious when considering a facility that has severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This facility was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the category of short-term care. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is often a useful measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing score is mostly based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place averaged just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This statistic is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility didn't perform very well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 41.72535 percent of its residents, which is not a very encouraging sign. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
