Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. Inspection scores are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This nursing home had 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent risk to patient health or safety. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Surprisingly, we awarded this facility a C for our short-term care rating, which really isn't a bad grade. Our short-term care scores are arguably more critical for people requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. There are numerous subcategories within this area. Many of these datapoints relate to staffing levels. This particular place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This statistic is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we scored was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 96.63461 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
