Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. There are many criteria within this area. Most of these criteria are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out this facility's abysmal long-term care score where it was given a lowly F. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home provided the vaccine to only 71.20823 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this facility received a lowly F for its inspection score. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This facility had 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our last area, this facility didn't perform well here either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Our short-term care grade is often used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. As you might expect, we learned that this nursing home offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
