Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this facility an abysmal overall score, we awarded it a B- for our nursing category. Our nursing score features a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a B- for its short-term care grade, which isn't a bad grade. In forming our short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For nursing homes with poor inspection grades, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to patient health or safety. 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: F

The next area we assessed is long-term care, in which this facility was given a very poor grade in this area also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the vaccine to just 71.830986 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
