Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We were not high on this place's overall grades or its category grades. We gave it a D for long-term care and that actually turned out to be its highest grade. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated only 70.48711 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing rating is largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. In our short-term care rating, we seek to create a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. With a grade this poor in this area, we were not shocked to learn this place was well below average in several staffing figures we looked at. It provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our last category of inspections, this nursing home received an abysmal grade. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a threat to patient safety or health. 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.
