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: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another concern was the F this facility received in the category of short-term care. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is more often than not a meaningful assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a grade of this caliber for this category, we weren't shocked to learn that this place was below average in multiple staffing figures we assess. The facility supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that 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 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we analyzed is long-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is a very poor grade. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 55.06536 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
