Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We weren't high on this nursing home's overall grade or its category grades. We gave it just a D for our short-term care rating and that turned out to be its best score. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out this nursing home's inspection score where it received a lowly F. This generally means we found some major red flags on its inspection reports. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our next category we assessed was long-term care, where this nursing home received an F. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After we finished looking at the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated just 37.55334 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final category we scored is nursing. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
