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. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home excelled in the category of nursing, where it received an B-. Few nursing homes fared better in this area. Nursing scores are largely based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home also didn't fare poorly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of C in that area, which ended up being among its more respectable grades. In our short-term care score, we attempt to forge a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 3.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we assessed is long-term care, which was a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for the area of long-term care. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 96.969696 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
