Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades are based on several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in this category. Sadly, this ended up being its second best grade. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. One of the datapoints we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 80.09828 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third area we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home's received an unfortunate short-term care score where it was given a lowly F. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to the last area, this nursing home really did not perform well in this area either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. We weighed the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in computing our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
