Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this place'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 grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. 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

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we gave this facility an D. When computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the amount of time nurses are with patients and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not a score to write home about. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. As you might expect, we found that this facility offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.4 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to the final category, we gave this facility a D in the area of long-term care. This was the facility's least impressive category score. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 99.25094 percent of its patients, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
