Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although this facility's overall grade was rock bottom, it didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. We gave it a B- for this category. Our nursing grade includes quite a few components, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a low total compared to most facilities. Lastly, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Incredibly, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for its short-term care rating, which really isn't too bad of a score. Our short-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third area we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home was given an F. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.82353 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last category of inspections, this nursing home received an F here. Since this data is compiled by government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this category. For places with bad inspection scores, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient 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.
