Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We were not able to award this facility any respectable grades. We especially wanted to point out that it received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing scores are largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 2.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Unfortunately, this facility also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based metrics to go along with its low nursing hours. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This place was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this measure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection rating. Typically, this means we found some major red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. For nursing homes with poor inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by CMS had the potential to create actual harm to residents. In addition to having severe deficiencies, 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development was the F this facility was given in the category of long-term care. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated only 81.29252 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this place fared poorly with 3.23 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, this statistic is nearly double the national average.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed is short-term care, where this nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade here also. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is definitely a major concern. In our short-term care score, we strive to create a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this facility offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 39.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
