Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we graded this nursing home very poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a B- in that category. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Remarkably, we awarded this facility a grade of B- for its short-term care score, which is not too bad of a score. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 62.448982 percent of its patients. This is several points below average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

The last category we looked at was inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being this facility's weakest link. We gave it a D in this area. Since this information is compiled by independent government inspectors, we weight it heavily in our overall grade. One of the most critical factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information on deficiency's for this nursing home. 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.
