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. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating and that actually turned out to be its second highest score. Our nursing score is largely associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This number is far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another issue was the F this nursing home received in the category of short-term care. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Given its score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored is long-term care, in which this facility received a poor score here also. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is obviously very concerning. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 93.25045 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is slightly less than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
