Facility Inspections

Grade: D

We were not high on this nursing home's overall score or its category grades. We gave it just a D for inspections and that actually turned out to be its highest grade. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Nursing scores are primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 2.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. This facility also had abysmal marks in some of the quality-based measures to pair with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This place was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This statistic helped pull down this nursing home's nursing score quite a bit.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this nursing home an F in the category of short-term care. In forming our short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. As you might expect, we found that this facility offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 44.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored was long-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in that category. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 26.116072 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at limiting hospitalizations. Although it had 2.76 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic wasn't bad due to it having some more complex patients. This is its best feature in this category
