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: C

Incredibly, we gave this facility a grade of C for our long-term care grade, which is not a bad grade. In determining our long-term care grades, we size up the personal care received by a facility's residents. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 79.18216 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. The nursing rating includes many factors, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.2 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-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored was short-term care, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal grade in this area also. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Based on its abysmal grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn this place offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
