Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Neither this nursing home's overall score nor its category grades gave us many positives to write about. This place's best category was inspections, but even here we gave it a grade of just D. This is a very poor score. Inspection ratings weigh many items on the nursing home's inspection reports. When you find too many deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular facility had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

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. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another concern was the F this facility received in the category of long-term care. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 54.48718 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a bit lower than average. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored is short-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in this area. Our short-term care grade is often employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this place offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
