Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to learn that this facility received a solid long-term care grade in our assessment. We awarded it a C in that category. Long-term care ratings are meaningful for residents seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.710144 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second least favorable category was short-term care, where it received just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more meaningful for residents in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. When a facility has this poor of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular nursing home was hit with one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst categories of deficiencies. On top of having severe deficiencies, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
