Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We did not have any positive things to say about this nursing home's overall grade or its category grades. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 68.65853 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to resident safety or health. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. The nursing rating weighs a variety of datapoints. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home offered a meager 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we assessed was short-term care, where this nursing home received a very poor score here as well. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously very concerning. With our short-term care score, we endeavor to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With a score of this caliber for this category, we were not shocked to discover that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
