Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Neither this place's overall score nor its category grades gave us much to write home about. Its best area was short-term care, but even there it received a lowly D. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Based on its score in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Nursing grades are mostly associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

This facility received an F for its inspection grade. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed significant government fines of over $100,000. This generally indicates that a bad track record spanned multiple years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home didn't fare well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. This nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 90.909096 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
