Facility Inspections

Grade: D

We simply could not find anything positive to say about this place. It received a D in the category of inspections. Sadly, this turned out to be its best score. Inspection scores factor in many items found on the nursing home's inspection reports. If you see too many deficiencies on the reports, this is generally the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular facility was hit with 9 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

We also would like to note that this nursing home was given an F for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 33.626373 percent of its patients, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. In determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents and the skill levels of those nurses. With a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is short-term care, in which this nursing home received an abysmal grade in this category also. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more critical for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4 percent of its residents returning home.
