Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Neither this place's overall grade nor its category grades gave us much to highlight here. Its best category was long-term care, but even there it received just a D. This is still a well below average grade. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 99.54683 percent of its residents, which is an above average statistic. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being its second best grade. One of the most critical factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by CMS had the potential to cause actual harm to residents. Finally, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed large government fines of over $100,000. This often means that a nursing home'sbad track record has been an issue for several years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The third category we analyzed was short-term care. This nursing home's received a poor short-term care score where it received an F. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most important for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Given its weak score in this category, we were not stunned to find this facility provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we scored was nursing, where this facility was given an abysmal score here as well. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. In determining a facility's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of skill of those 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. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
