Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. We weighed the levels of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Remarkably, we gave this facility a grade of B- for its short-term care grade, which isn't a bad grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. 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 hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. For facilities that received this bad of an inspection score, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home had 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we looked at was long-term care. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 95.180725 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
