This nursing home's scores are horrible across the board. In particular, we wanted to draw your attention to its inspection grade where it received an F. This isn't a good sign for its government inspection reports. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines totaling more than $100,000. This generally suggests that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for several years.

Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. With a score of this caliber in this category, we were not stunned to find this nursing home was below average in two of the key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.2 percent of its patients returning home.

Turning to our next area, this nursing home didn't perform well here either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 77.61905 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
