Short-term Care Quality

Historical

Neither this nursing home's overall grade nor its category grades gave us anything positive to point out. Its best category was short-term care, but even there it received just a D. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this place provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Historical

We also wanted to note this facility's abysmal long-term care score where it was given an F. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 49.027233 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points below what we expected. Unfortunately, its hospitalization rate was also a cause for concern. Here we found that this nursing home had 2.71 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an alarming rate.

Facility Inspections

Oct 18: FNov 18: FDec 18: FMar 19: F
Historical

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. When a facility has this poor of an inspection score, 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 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility is classified as a special focus facility by CMS. This generally means the facility exhibited substandard patient care over the course of multiple government inspections. We would strongly advise you to avoid any facility with this classification.

Nurse Quality

F
Oct 18: FNov 18: FDec 18: FMar 19: F
Historical

The next category we rated is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a very poor grade. Nursing grades are based in large part on quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility averaged only 3.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. To go along with its below average total nursing hours per resident, this place had bad marks in several of the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing falls which led to serious injury. This place was at more than 1.5 times the national average in this statistic.
