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 B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this facility earned a solid long-term care grade this year. We gave it a C in this area. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 33.825947 percent of its residents. This is significantly below what we expected. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. There are many subcategories included in this category. Many of these criteria are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our last category, this facility really did not fare well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
