Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second best score is short-term care, but it still earned just a D in that category. This turns out to be a relatively poor grade. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Given its weak score in this category, we weren't shocked to learn this nursing home provides far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. Our nursing score analyzes a handful of subcategories, however, the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our fourth area, this facility didn't fare well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 70.98446 percent of its residents. This is quite a bit lower than average. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
