Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our short-term care rating. Short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility excelled in the area of nursing, where it earned an D. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. 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. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to draw your attention to this place's inspection rating where it received an F. This often means we found some red flags on the inspections. For nursing homes with bad inspection ratings, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored was long-term care. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 88.74598 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
