Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our rating in this area. This particular nursing home provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, while this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a middle of the road grade in the area of short-term care, with a B-. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is often a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a respectable score in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our long-term care grade is used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 86.30137 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last category of inspections, this facility received an abysmal grade. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection rating. We would scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
