Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this nursing home an abysmal overall score, we gave it a B- for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Remarkably, we gave this facility a B- for its short-term care rating, which is not too bad of a score. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. One of the more critical factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we looked at was long-term care, where this nursing home received a very poor score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is obviously a major concern. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 87.79343 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly below what we expected. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
