Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facilities grades were terrible across the board. In particular, we wanted to draw your attention to its poor long-term care grade where it received an F. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 97.92746 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this nursing home earned an F for its inspection grade. This is a very important category. Grades in this range generally point to some red flags on the nursing home's government inspection reports. For facilities with poor inspection grades, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines amounting to more than $100,000. This typically means that a bad track record spanned multiple years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we assessed is short-term care. This facility's received a low-end short-term care grade where it received a lowly F. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its poor rating in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this place offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we looked at is nursing. We gave it an F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. When computing our nursing grades, we weigh both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. With only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
