Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Neither this place's overall grade nor its category scores gave us anything positive to point out. Its best category was short-term care, but even there it received a grade of just D. With our short-term care rating, we strive to create a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this place is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this facility earned an F for its inspection score. This is a particularly important category. Grades in this range typically point to some red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. For places that received this poor of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home had 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to resident safety or health. 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.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This place provided only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we analyzed was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a very poor grade. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 93.93939 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
