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 0.4 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 6.6 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: D

The next area we looked at was long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's least impressive area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 88.0597 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
