Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Neither this nursing home's overall grade nor its category scores gave us anything positive to point out. Its best area was short-term care, but even there it received a lowly D. This is still a poor score. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Based on its abysmal score in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this place offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility really excelled in nursing, where it received a grade of D. Our nursing grade features many subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another issue was the F this facility received in the category of long-term care. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 84.26573 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In the last category of inspections, this nursing home really did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection category. This happens to be the most heavily weighted category in our scoring system. When a place has this bad of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed one category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by the government inspectors had potential to cause actual harm to residents. On top of having severe deficiencies, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
