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. Our nursing grade considers numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this facility earned a reasonably solid long-term care score in our assessment. We gave it a B- in this category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 99.63537 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

This nursing home received very weak government inspections in recent years, causing them to receive an F for inspections. An F in this area is typically a signal that we found red flags on the nursing home's government inspection reports. For places that received this bad of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home had several deficiencies in categories G through L, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by CMS had potential to create actual harm to residents. Another area of concern is that 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

The next category we rated was short-term care. This nursing home was given a poor grade of F in this area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Given its poor score in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 2.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
