Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Neither this facility's overall grade nor its category grades gave us much to write home about. Its best category was long-term care, but even there we gave it a grade of just D. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.94118 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

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. When a facility has this bad of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. When computing a facility's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is short-term care. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in that area. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is considered to be a meaningful measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Considering its score in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this facility 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 looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
