Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though this nursing home's overall score was terrible, it didn't perform as poorly in the area of nursing. We awarded it a B- for this category. In calculating our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility also didn't grade out terribly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a B- for that category, which is among its more respectable scores. Our short-term care scores are likely most critical for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another concern was the F this nursing home was given in the category of long-term care. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 94.76744 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning the last category of inspections, this facility fared very poorly. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection rating. When a place has this bad of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This facility had 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
