Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given just a D in that area. As it turns out, this ended up being its second best grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 38.588234 percent of its residents. This is quite a bit lower than what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in that category. In our short-term care score, we endeavor to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored is nursing, in which this facility received a bottom of the barrel score in this area as well. It received an F in this area, which is definitely a major concern. When determining our nursing grades, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
