Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We really could not find anything positive to say about this facility. It received a D in long-term care. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 49.027233 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's second highest score was short-term care. However, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for patients requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. The nursing grade includes many datapoints, however, the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our final area of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. Since this information is collected by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight poor results in this category. With nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this nursing home is what is known as a special focus facility. This is one of the worse labels CMS uses. It typically means that the facility has been flagged by CMS for substandard care. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future.
