Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Although this facility's overall grade was horrible, it actually didn't perform quite as poorly in the area of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a C for that area, which isn't bad. This was not enough to spare its otherwise poor profile. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated only 81.05023 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's worst category grades was an F for its inspection rating. Generally, this means we found some red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. For places with poor inspection ratings, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility had 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home received a very poor grade in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this area, which is obviously very concerning. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most critical for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
